Environmental Pressure Index
The Ecologic Institute supports DG Environment in assessing and assembling data sources for the composite environmental pressure index which will serve as an overall indicator for human pressures on the environment.
The Environmental Pressure index is a composite index aggregating over 40 different Indicators of environmental pressures. Based on work already conducted by the European Commission, the ecologic institute has been asked to identify robust data sources for 16 of those indicators. The work of the Ecologic Institute does focus on the areas of greenhouse gas emissions, nature conservation, agricultural water pollution, noise pollution and waste.
