ECO-EFFICIENCY PROFILES

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Eco-efficiency profiles combine economic contribution and environmental burden by industry. The economic contribution is represented, for example, by the percent each industry contributes to GDP or employment. The environmental burden is represented by the percent each industry contributes to the emission of various residuals, or the use of materials and energy.

See “Environmental economic profiles”.
