    Public spending in environmentally related RD, % of total public spending

    Production-based CO2 productivity

    GDP generated per unit of CO2 emitted through fuel consumption

    Demand-based CO2 productivity

    Real national income per unit of CO2 emitted at various stages of production of the goods and services consumed in domestic final demand, irrespective of where the stages of production occurred. Trends in emissions on this basis serve as a diagnostic complement to the more traditional production based measures.

    Recycling rate of e-waste

    Electrical and electronic waste (e-waste) is a risk to environment because of its hazardous components. However, it also provides a high potential for recycling precious metals and other highly valuable materials.
    The indicator presents the effective recycling rate of e-waste which is the collection rate multiplied by the efficiency of treatment of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
    WEEE cannot simply be regarded as being equivalent to the amount put on the market in the same year, as EEE often takes longer than one year to become a waste.

    Socio-Economic outcomes

    The indicator comprises socio-economic outcomes, representing one of five thematic groupings in the Eco-Innovation Scoreboard. The index for this area is calculated based on three indicators: Exports of products from eco-industries (% of total exports), employment in eco-industries (% of total workforce) and turnover in eco-industries.
