Green GDP Accounting in Yellow River Delta

The economic losses caused by water pollution, air pollution and noise pollution in the Yellow River Delta are estimated, and the green GDP is calculated. The results show that water pollution caused economic losses of about 541.5814 million yuan in the Yellow River Delta in 2010; particulate matter caused health risk economic losses of 163.1369 million yuan, and excess mortality economic losses of 33.4742 million yuan; noise pollution caused economic losses of 594.2768 million yuan. The total losses reach approximately 2705.198 million yuan, accounting for 0.97% of the total GDP. After subtracting the total losses from the total regional GDP (541.58 billion yuan), the revised green GDP is about 536.3127 billion yuan. Obviously, environmental pollution has a certain impact on the economic growth. The coordinated development of environment and economy can be achieved by adjusting the industrial structure, developing circular economy and so on.
