Developing and Evaluating Appropriate Indicators for Monitoring Waste Prevention Measures

July 2015 to December 2017
In order to foster waste prevention, article 29 of the European Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EG requires Member States to lay down national waste prevention programmes, specifying appropriate benchmarks for waste prevention measures. It enables Member States to make use of concrete quantitative and qualitative indicators (see also § 33 III 4 KrWG).

Measuring-Progress.eu - Navigation through the Green Economy Indicator Jungle

After almost two years of work led by Ecologic Institute on the project NETwork for GREEN Economy Indicators (NETGREEN), the initiative’s main output was unveiled: a database for Green Economy indicators. Actually, this product is a multifunctional tool rather than a simple database. The tool helps to identify and understand the best indicators to measure progress towards the green economy. Therefore, it is useful for policy-makers and people trying to influence them. This initiative is of significant interest for the Directorate-General for Environment, as can be seen in a recent interview with the NETGREEN project team. The interview is available online.

State of Europe's Seas

The European Environment Agency’s (EEA) report aims to assess whether Europe is meeting the goals of the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). The authors, among them scientists at Ecologic Institute, argue that the European Union is not on a path to fulfill its ambition of achieving sustainable use of its seas; despite being fully capable to do so using the current array of existing policies and knowledge. The report is available for download.Read more

Measuring Progress – Explore Green Economy Indicators

measuring-progress.eu
'One size fits it all' does not apply when it comes to the right indicators for policy making. The NETGREEN consortium recently published its interactive tool "measuring-progress.eu" which collects green economy indicators in addition to helping users navigate through them. This tool incorporates the most important indicators and useful information about each of them. Additionally, an interpretation aid and information about related indicators are provided. By doing, this, "measuring-progress.eu" provides guidance to policy makers and researchers who want to use and further develop indicators and tools in the field.Read more

Mid-term Evaluation of the Renewable Energy Directive

A study in the context of the REFIT programme
The Renewable Energy Directive (RED) established a framework for promoting renewable energy development in all sectors, including binding national renewable energy targets and a mandatory target of 10% for all Member States for renewable energy use in transport. Commissioned by DG Energy, a consortium composed of CE Delft, Ricardo-AEA, Ecologic Institute, E-Bridge and REKK carried out an assessment of the effectiveness and efficiency so far of measures and actions laid down in the Directive. Stephan Sina, Christine Lucha, Andreas Prahl and Lenat Donat contributed to the study. The study is available for download.Read more

Analytical Framework for Assessment of Shipping and Harbours in the Baltic Sea

Deliverable 5.1 – Sustainable Shipping and Environment of the Baltic Sea Region (SHEBA)
The aim of this report is to create a framework to understand and ultimately assess the linkages from the drivers of shipping in the Baltic Sea to its effects on ecosystem services and human wellbeing. Available Drivers Pressures State Impact Response (DPSIR) frameworks are analysed and adapted to shipping in the Baltic Sea. The developed DPSIR framework will be operationalised in further steps using available indicators. An adapted DPSIR framework and especially the reviewed indicators will be used to assess potential changes to ecosystem services compared to Business As Usual (BAU) and an integrated assessment and policy analysis to reduce pressures from shipping in the Baltic Sea.Read more

Facilitating Multi-level Governance for Energy Efficiency (multEE)

March 2015 to August 2017
The overall objective of multEE is to improve the consistency and quality of energy efficiency policy planning and implementation on different administrative levels in the beneficiary countries. The multEE-project supports this objective through the introduction of innovative monitoring and verification (M&V) schemes based on bottom-up data to ensure the impact of energy efficiency measures is correctly evaluated and useable for future energy efficiency planning. Moreover, multEE aims at improving vertical coordination between administrative levels in order to use the full potential of the integrated M&V schemes developed in multEE and improve the overall quality of energy efficiency planning and implementation.Read more
