The indicator is based on 16 sub-indicators from eight contributors in five thematic areas: eco-innovation inputs, eco-innovation activities, eco-innovation outputs, resource efficiency outcomes and socio-economic outcomes. The overall score of an EU Member State is calculated by the unweighted mean of the 16 sub-indicators. It shows how well individual Member States perform in eco-innovation compared to the EU average, which is equated with 100 (index EU=100). The index complements other measurement approaches of innovativeness of EU countries and aims to promote a holistic view on economic, environmental and social performance. The relevant target in the Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe is for an increase in the funding for research that contributes to the environmental knowledge base. Such increases will tend to improve a Member State’s positioning according to the index. This indicator is published by the Eco-Innovation Observatory.
