Research overview:
Among major factors comprising the basic background of the global environmental problems which are expanding worldwide is the accelerating urbanization and the continued growth of the population in the cities. The city can be regarded as an organic system which intakes an abundance of energy and other resources and outlet exahaust material and waste heat into the environment. Therefore, fundamental change in the pattern and structure of the system of energy and material use in the city is imperative for the solution of global environmental issues such as the climatic change by CO2. From such a viewpoint, the study aims to establish a system of environmental resource accounting
