Statistical indicators measuring resource efficiency are necessary for assessing and communicating overall progress towards Resource Efficiency in the context of the Europe 2020 strategy, as well as for a more detailed monitoring of specific policies supporting Resource Efficiency.
The Commission is committed to reaching broad agreement with stakeholders on suitable indicators and possible target setting by 2013.
The Commission has published a paper to inform stakeholders about the analysis on resource efficiency indicators undertaken by the Commission so far, to bring about debate and to allow for informed discussion. This paper includes a first draft Scoreboard, relating to resource efficiency with graphs for Member States and the EU-27 where available.
