Abstract

It is often claimed that there is a trade-off between economic goals and the quality of the environment. For this reason, an environmental input-output optimization model with multiple objectives is formulated. The criteria are the minimization of factor costs to produce the Gross National Product and the minimization of net pollution for a given level of final demand. This chapter examines the environmental impact of economic activity and devolved economic policy in a regional context producing an environmental input-output model for Scotland.
