EEA circulates "core set" of EU green indicators
The European environment agency has released a guide to the "core set" of 37 environmental indicators that will underpin other EU indicator-based assessments of green progress. The agency adopted the set last year; first measurements will be published for most of them in the final quarter of this year. The indicators will be used to compile other reports such as the headline EU sustainability indicators (EED 13/10/03) and specialised transport and environment indicators (EED 22/09/04). Gaps in the set - in areas such as chemicals, consumption and material flows - will be plugged by the later addition of more indicators. See EEA core-set indicators guide.
