This publication presents data about the expenditure on environmental protection in the Manufacturing and Electricity industries in Israel. These industries have an important impact on the economy as well as on the environment.

The publication aims to present estimates of the expenditure in Manufacturing and Electricity on environmental protection, for purposes of the formulation of environmental policy, for the business sector, academic institutions, and international organizations (such as the OECD[1]).

The data in this publication relate to the expenditures of businesses on environmental protection activities in 2020. The main purpose of these activities is to deal with environmental issues or prevent harm to the environment (e.g., the construction of wastewater treatment plants, maintenance of chimneys, and payments for the removal of waste). The data in the publication are classified by the various divisions of the Manufacturing and Electricity industries, according to the CBS's Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities 2011 classifications[2] and the classifications used in OECD publications. Additionally, the data are classified by the environmental effects domain in which the activity is carried out (wastewater, waste, etc.), by type of expenditure (investment or current expenditure) and by the type of technology (end-of-pipe solutions or clean technology).

This is the sixth publication dealing with expenditure on environmental protection in Manufacture (the previous publications presented data for 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2017). Data regarding expenditure on environmental protection for the public sector (investments and current expenditures of the government, local authorities and non-profit institutions) are published each year (Table 22.1 in the Statistical Abstract of Israel on the CBS website). The data in this publication are based on a designated survey conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics, which was carried out in accordance with international methodology (Eurostat,[3] OECD) and adjusted for Israel.

We would like to thank the businesses that took part in the survey and enabled us to produce this information.
