Environmental indicators, modelling and outlooks

Focus

  • Green patents

    Far-reaching innovation is needed to address climate change and other environmental challenges, and to accelerate the transition to green growth. To measure the output of environmental innovation, the OECD published a new set of green patent indicators in March 2015.

  • Country profiles

    For each of the 34 OECD member countries, the country profiles provide snapshots of key policy areas. Interactive graphs show indicators on air quality, biodiversity, climate change, energy-forest-water resources, waste generation, water quality and environmentally related taxes. Updated in June 2015.

 Green growth indicators 

The OECD designed these indicators to help countries assess and compare their progress towards green growth: resource productivity, natural asset base, environmental quality of life and economic opportunities and policy responses.

 

 

The Circle project

The Circle project aims to identify how feedbacks from poor environmental quality, climate change and natural resource scarcity are likely to affect economic growth in the coming decades.

 Modelling

The OECD's modelling work aims to assist governments in identifying least-cost policy mixes on a range of environmental issues, including mitigation of climate change, phasing out fossil-fuel subsidies, etc.  


Outlooks

Environmental Outlooks help policy makers understand the scale and context of the environmental challenges they will face in the coming decades, as well as the economic and environmental implications of the policies that could be used to address these challenges.
