Indicators for pressures linked to use of resources, land area, water use, and fossil fuel emissions
Unlike most of the phenomena covered in Subprojects 3 and 4, those in Subproject 5 are already established in consumption-based accounting frameworks: pressures linked to use of resources (metals, timber, energy), land area and water use, and emissions from fossil fuel burning, both greenhouse gases and other emissions.
An important task will be to decide which of these to implement as priorities in the PRINCE monitoring framework. A long-list of possible indicators includes:
The Subproject 5 team is led by Arnold Tukker, TNO/CML.
