The graph shows the share of direct and indirect environmental pressures (footprints) caused by EU-27 household consumption expenditure on different household consumption categories. The household consumption categories are developed from the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP) single digit categories. COICOP one-digit includes12 broad categories of consumption. 3 pairs of COICOP categories (CP01& CP02; CP06 & CP10; CP07 & CP08) have been merged to give 9 categories in total. Shares are shown for 6 different environmental pressure types: GHGs, acidifying air pollutant emissions, tropospheric ozone precursors, material use, land and water.
