The EU aims to lead, compete and prosper as a greener, knowledge-based economy, growing fast and sustainably and creating high levels of employment.
To mobilise new sources of green growth, social, economic and environmental policies need to be brought more closely together.
Accordingly, tools to identify and monitor policies which can achieve a faster transition to a greener economy are needed.
Therefore, we are developing an indicator-based assessment framework tracking how structural reforms may encourage a competitive, greener economy. This tool combines best available indicators in aggregated performance scores measuring the distance to the EU27 average and improvements over time. It is flexible to incorporate new relevant indicators, as they become available.
