    Environmental Performance Index

    Environmental Performance Index is an indicator that measures environmental performance compared to two main objectives: Environmental Health and Ecosystem Vitality. Environmental Health measures the protection of human health from environmental harm. Ecosystem Vitality measures ecosystem protection and resource management. These two objectives are further divided into nine issue categories that span high-priority environmental policy issues, including air quality, forests, fisheries, and climate and energy, among others.

    Global Green Economy Index

    The Global Green Economy Index comprises the Green Perception Survey and the Green Performance Index. Themes investigated are environmental performance, climate change, natural capital, environmental industries and investment, and leadership on these issues.

    Landfill rate of waste excluding major mineral wastes

    The indicator is defined as the volume of waste landfilled (directly or indirectly) in a country per year divided by the volume of the waste treated in the same year. Waste taken into account excludes major mineral wastes, dredging spoils and contaminated soils. This exclusion enhances comparability across countries, as mineral waste accounts for high quantities in some countries due to economic activities such as mining and construction.

    Generation of waste excluding major mineral wastes

    This indicator is defined as all waste generated in a country per inhabitant and year, excluding major mineral wastes, dredging spoils and contaminated soils. This exclusion enhances comparability across countries as mineral waste accounts for high quantities in some countries and economic activities such as mining and construction.

    Productivity of artificial land

    Productivity of artificial land is defined as the gross domestic product (GDP) of a country divided by its total artificial land. Artificial land consists of built-up areas (areas covered with buildings and greenhouses) and non built-up areas (streets and sealed surfaces). Artificial land productivity shows whether built-up and non built-up areas are efficiently used to generate added economic value.
    For the calculation of artificial land productivity Eurostat uses the GDP in millions of PPS (Purchasing Power Standard).

    Built-up areas

    The indicator measures the total built-up area in a country (in km2). Built-up areas are areas covered with buildings and greenhouses.
