    Greenhouse gas emissions

    Trend in annual total man-made emissions of the ‘Kyoto basket’ of greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O and F-gases) in relation to 1990 emissions and the Kyoto base year.

    Greenhouse gas emissions per capita

    "This indicator shows trends in man-made emissions of the 'Kyoto basket' of greenhouse gases per capita.
    The 'Kyoto basket' of greenhouse gases includes: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and the so-called F-gases (hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6))."

    Consumption of ozone-depleting substances

    The consumption of ozone-depleting substances is the sum of the consumption of the ozone-depleting potential- weighted metric tons of all ozone-depleting substances controlled under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. (Definition UN statistical handbook)

    Share of energy from renewable sources

    The contribution of renewables, i.e. energy from hydro, geothermal, solar, wind, tide and wave source as well as biofuels and the renewable fraction of municipal waste as percentage of total primary energy supply. (source: OECD)

    Adjusted net savings, including particulate emission damage (current US$)

    Adjusted net savings are equal to net national savings plus education expenditure and minus energy depletion, mineral depletion, net forest depletion, and carbon dioxide and particulate emissions damage.

    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.

    Regulatory Quality

    Production-based CO2 productivity

    GDP generated per unit of CO2 emitted through fuel consumption

    Demand-based CO2 productivity

    Real national income per unit of CO2 emitted at various stages of production of the goods and services consumed in domestic final demand, irrespective of where the stages of production occurred. Trends in emissions on this basis serve as a diagnostic complement to the more traditional production based measures.

    Complete Energy Balance Sheets

    An energy balance sheet calculates energy entering, exiting and used within the national territory of a given country during a reference period. The indicator covers the gross inland consumption of all energy related products.

    Resource Efficiency Scoreboard

    The Resource efficiency scoreboard is a tool / user interface for presenting key indicators relating to natural resources. For this scoreboard, a limited set of already available indicators was selected, covering as many as possible of the themes and subthemes identified in the Roadmap to a resource efficient Europe. It is a three tier system based on a lead indicator, a dashboard of indicators and a set of theme specific indicators:
    - One Lead indicator – focus on resource productivity
    - 9 Dashboard indicators with focus on carbon, water and land;

    Domestic material consumption per capita

    The indicator presents the domestic material consumption (DMC) for each Member State and EU-27 and is expressed in tonnes per capita. The DMC is defined as the total amount of material directly used in an economy and equals direct material input (DMI) minus exports. DMI measures the direct input of materials for the use in the economy. DMI equals domestic extraction (DE) plus imports.

    The indicator is part of resource efficiency scoreboard

    Average carbon dioxide emissions per km from new passenger cars

    This indicator is defined as the average emissions of carbon dioxide per kilometre by new passenger cars registered in a given year.
