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;
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).
The indicator measures how much economic output is produced per cubic meter of fresh water abstracted. It indicates the productivity of water use.
