Resource Efficiency Indicators
WWF response to the Commission consultation “Options for resource efficiency indicators”.
In the context of the “Roadmap for a Resource Efficient Europe” setting up 20 environmental milestones by 2020, the European Commission has launched a Resource Efficiency Platform (EREP) composed of three working groups: “circular economy”, “setting objectives and measuring progress”, and “framework conditions for investment in resource efficiency”.
This consultation is the first result of the second multi stakeholders group. It presents a first set of indicators meant to measure resource efficiency, in an effort to move beyond GDP.
The first proposal consists in:
- A lead indicator (GDP/DMC)
- A dashboard including resource use and impact of the use of water, land, carbon and material
- Thematic indicators
- A scoreboard, including some but not all indicators
