Eurostat publishes first resource efficiency scoreboard - Eco-innovation Action Plan

Eurostat publishes first resource efficiency scoreboard - Eco-innovation Action Plan | cmi Unit 5004v1 Practices of Resource Management | Scoop.it

The scoreboard is headlined by an indicator for resource productivity, which shows gross domestic product divided by domestic material consumption (domestic raw material extraction plus raw material imports minus raw material exports). This shows that, between 2000 and 2011, the European Union generated about 20 percent more income from its domestic material consumption.

Other indicators measure productivity relative to water extraction, land use and energy use. Also included in the resource efficiency scoreboard are indicators for issues such as waste production and re-use/recycling, emissions from buildings and transport and the condition of soils.
