    Ecological Footprint

    The Ecological Footprint represents the productive area required to provide the renewable resources humanity is using, as well the area required to absorb the waste emitted.

    Fuel prices

    "The price of fuel in the EU, including the cost price, excise duty and VAT. Prices are in Euros per litre."

    Domestic material consumption by material

    The indicator Domestic Material Consumption (DMC) is defined as the total amount of material directly used in an economy. DMC equals Direct Material Input (DMI) minus exports and Domestic Extraction (DE) plus imports. (source: Eurostat, http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cache/metadata/EN/tsdpc230_esmsip.htm)

    Water scarcity index

    Water scarcity is the lack of sufficient available water resources to meet the demands of water usage within a region.

    Domestic Material Consumption (DMC)

    The indicator "measures the total amount of materials directly used by an economy and is defined as the annual quantity of raw materials extracted from the domestic territory, plus all physical imports minus all physical exports."

    Physical Trade Balance (PTB)

    The trade surplus or deficit of material resources within an economy, calculated as imports minus exports of raw materials and manufactured products.

    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.

    Water Exploitation Index (WEI)

    The water exploitation index (WEI) is the mean annual total abstraction of freshwater as percentage of the mean annual total renewable freshwater resource at the country level,.

    Green investments (to capture potential source of transformational change)

    The Green Transition Scoreboard tracks private sector investments in the global economy, relevant to renewable energy, energy efficiency, water (2014 theme), research and development and green technologies (i.e. clean tech).

    Adjusted savings: natural resources depletion (% of GNI)

    Natural resource depletion is the sum of net forest depletion, energy depletion, and mineral depletion.

    Domestic Extraction (used/unused/total)

    The indicator measures the flows of raw materials extracted or harvested from the environment.
    The sub-cathegory ‘unused extraction’ refers to materials that are not economically used for further processing (e.g.unused residuals of biomass extraction).

    Demand-based material productivity

    Demand-based material productivity is a comprehensive measure. The original units are in physical terms: real income per unit of materials consumed. It is a planned indicator, and the OECD does not provide an inception timeline. (03.03.2015).

    Population density (people per sq. km of land area)

    Population density of a country is midyear population divided by land area in square kilometers. Population is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship--except for refugees not permanently settled in the country of asylum, who are generally considered part of the population of their country of origin. Land area is a country's total area, excluding area under inland water bodies, national claims to continental shelf, and exclusive economic zones.

    Energy Resources

    It presents statistics for reserves, and production of various energy resources at the global level.

    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.

    Water productivity

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

    Area under organic farming

    The indicator measures the share of total utilized agricultural area occupied by organic farming (existing organically-farmed areas and areas in process of conversion). Organic farming is a method of production, which puts the highest emphasis on environmental protection and, with regard to livestock production, animal welfare considerations.

    Gross nutrient balance in agricultural land - nitrogen

    The gross nutrient balance represents the total potential threat to the environment of nitrogen surplus or deficit in agricultural soils. It is calculated accounting the nitrogen added to an agricultural system and the nitrogen removed from the system per hectare of agricultural land.
