    Generation and recycling of packaging waste

    Total packaging used in EU Member States in kg per capita.

    Recycling of packaging waste as a share of packaging used in EU Member States. The amount of packaging used is expected to equal the amount of packaging waste generated because of its short lifetime.

    Municipal waste generation, total

    Total Municipal waste consists of waste generated by households primarily, but may also include similar wastes generated by small businesses and public institutions and collected by the municipality.

    Components of domestic material consumption      

    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. DMI measures the direct input of materials for the use in the economy. DMI equals Domestic Extraction (DE) plus imports.

    Consumption of certain foodstuffs per inhabitant    

    This indicator presents the gross human apparent consumption of some major food items (cereals, meat and fish). Gross apparent human consumption is a proxy indicator for the availability of food to the consumer but not of the actual consumption by households.

    Ecolabel licenses

    This indicator is defined as the number of Ecolabel or "EU Flower" licences in European countries. The Community Ecolabel is awarded to products and services with reduced environmental impacts. It is administered by the European Commission and receives the support of all EU Member States and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). Ecolabel criteria are discussed in the European Union Ecolabelling Board (EUEB) whose membership includes representatives from industry, environmental protection groups, consumer organisations and representatives for SMEs.

    Resource productivity (GDP/Domestic Material Consumption)

    Resource productivity is defined as the ratio between gross domestic product (GDP) and domestic material consumption (DMC). The indicator Domestic Material Consumption (DMC) is based on the Economy-wide Material Flow Accounts (EW-MFA).

    The indicator is the lead indicator of the resource efficiency scoreboard

    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))."

    Water productivity (GDP/Water Footprint)

    "The indicator illustrates the amount of economic value generated by unit of water consumption. It is calculated as GDP (in Purchasing Power Standards /PPS) divided by the Water Footprint (WF) of a country."

    Quality of public transport

    Average scores by country from responses to a question on the European Quality of Life Survey which asks respondents to rate the quality of public services in their country on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 means very poor quality and 10 means very high quality.

    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.

    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)

    Municipal waste generation

    Municipal waste includes household waste and similar waste.

    The definition excludes:
    •waste from municipal sewage network and treatment,
    •municipal construction and demolition waste.
    (intensities can be chosen in the list, but has no data)

    Total environmentally related taxes, % GDP

    Environmentally related taxes include (i) energy products for transport and stationary purposes (ii) motor vehicles and transport; (iii) waste management; (iv) ozone-depleting substances and (v) other taxes.

    Happy Planet Index rank order

    The HPI measures the extent to which countries deliver long, happy, sustainable lives for the people that live in them. The Index uses global data on life expectancy, experienced well-being and Ecological Footprint to calculate this.

    The index is an efficiency measure, it ranks countries on how many long and happy lives they produce per unit of environmental input.

    Total wealth estimate ($)

    "The Wealth of Nations dataset provides country level data on comprehensive wealth, adjusted net saving, and non-renewable resource rents indicators, as published in "The Changing Wealth of Nations" (2011)."
    (World Bank, http://data.worldbank.org/data-catalog/wealth-of-nations, 23-01-2015)

    "Total wealth is present value of future consumption that is sustainable, discounted at a rate of time preference of 1.5 percent, over 25 years.

    Depletion Adjusted Saving (DAS) =

    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.

    Inclusive Wealth Index

    The inclusive wealth index measures all the assets from which human well-being is derived, including manufactured, human and natural capital, i.e. a nation’s capacity to maintain human well-being over time.

    Adjusted savings: natural resources depletion (% of GNI)

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