Statistics for the European Green Deal
At the end of March, Eurostat released a new interactive visualisation tool to show relevant statistics on the European Green Deal, one of the six European Commission priorities for 2019 – . With the European Green Deal, the Commission aims at eliminating greenhouse gases emissions by 2050 and decoupling economic growth from resource use, while leaving no person or place behind when trying to accomplish this.
The Eurostat´s tool allows to monitor 26 key indicators for the achievement of the European Green Deal´s objectives, such as the net index of greenhouse gas emissions, the total climate related economic losses in million or the amount of primary energy consumption.
These indicators, which apply to the EU and EFTA countries are further divided into three categories: indicators that aim at reducing our climate impact; indicators related to the protection of our planet & health; and indicators of activities enabling a green & just transition.
For each of these topics, Eurostat has made the discovering of statistics as intuitive and user-friendly as possible. For instance, you can customise the selection of countries and types of graphs to be displayed, easily access underlying datasets as well as share selected information on social media.
