    Ammonia emissions

    The indicator measures emissions of Ammonia (NH3). It also provides information on emissions by sectors (e.g. Industrial processes; Road transport)

    Damages from weather and climate-related events

    Emission of acidifying substances

    Energy and non-energy related greenhouse gas emissions

    Total man-made emissions of the ‘Kyoto basket’ of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and the so-called F-gases (hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6)). These gases are aggregated into a single unit using gas-specific global warming potential (GWP) factors.

    Exceedance of air quality limit values in urban areas

    The indicator shows the fraction of the EU-28 urban population that is potentially exposed to ambient air concentrations of certain pollutants (PM2.5, PM10, O3, NO2, SO2 and B(a)P)) in excess of the EU limit or target values (EU, 2004, 2008) set for the protection of human health; and to concentrations of these pollutants in excess of the WHO Guidelines (WHO, 2000, 2006).

    It also shows the evolution of urban background levels of PM2.5, PM10, O3 and NO2 at the European level.

    Forest growth

    This indicator measures forest area and volume of forest biomass.

    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.

    Production and consumption of ozone depleting substances

    This indicator quantifies the production and consumption of ozone-depleting substances (ODS) in Europe. ODS are long-lived chemicals that contain chlorine or/and bromine and that destroy the stratospheric ozone layer.

    The indicator presents production and consumption in units of tonnes of ODS, which is the amount of ODS produced or consumed, multiplied by their respective ozone depleting potential value. The UNEP - Ozone secretariat data are already provided in tonnes of Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP tonnes).

    Species of European interest

    The indicator shows changes in the conservation status of species of European interest.
    It is currently based on data collected under the obligations for monitoring under Article 11 of the EU Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC).

    Status of marine fish stocks

    "The indicator tracks the ratio of the number of over-fished stocks to the total number of commercial stocks per fishing area in European seas."

    Conservation status of species by taxonomic grouping

    Conservation status of species by taxonomic grouping (Article 17, Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC)

    Share of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption

    This indicator is calculated on the basis of data covered by Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 on energy statistics. Reporting countries provide additional information on renewable source not covered by the Regulation. This indicator may be considered an estimate of the indicator described in Directive 2009/28/EC because statistical systems in some countries are not yet fully developed to meet all the requirements of this Directive. More information about the renewable energy shares calculation methodology can be found on the Eurostat website.

    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.

    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)

    Emissions of non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOC), by source sector

    The indicator tracks trends since 1990 in anthropogenic atmospheric emissions of non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) by source sector.
    The indicator also provides information on emissions by sectors: Energy production and distribution; Energy use in industry; Industrial processes; Road transport; Non-road transport; Commercial, institutional and households; Solvent and product use; Agriculture; Waste; Other.

    Employment rate, by highest level of education attained  

    The indicator is calculated by dividing the number of employed people within age group 20-64 years having attained a specific level of education, by the total population of the same age group.

    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.

    Household saving rate   

    "The gross household saving rate measures the portion of disposable income that is not used by the household for final consumption. It is measured by gross saving divided by gross disposable income adjusted for the change in the net equity in pension fund reserves."
    (Eurostat, http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cache/metadata/EN/tsdec240_esmsip.htm, 13-01-2015)

    Adjusted net national income per capita (current US$)

    Adjusted net national income per capita is adjusted net national income (NNI) divided by number of people in the country.

    Adjusted NNI is Gross National Income (GNI) minus consumption of fixed capital and natural resources depletion.

    GNI is the sum of value added by all producers who are residents in a nation, plus any product taxes (minus subsidies) not included in output, plus income received from abroad such as employee compensation and property income.
