Direct and indirect global pressures caused by private consumption distributed by consumption (COICOP) category in nine EU countries, 2005
Note: new version is available!
This figure identifies the distribution of total global pressures caused by household consumption in 9 EU countries distributed among 12 COICOP consumption categories.
The pressures caused by household consumption categories include both direct and indirect pressures.
Direct pressures are those released during consumption of goods and services i.e. emissions to air from cars and from burning fuels in households for heating, cooking etc. Indirect pressures caused by consumption comprise all pressures released along the production chains of consumed goods. Includes goods produced domestically and imported goods.
4 environmental pressures are included – greenhouse gas emissions; acidification emissions; tropospheric ozone precursors and material consumption.
(except material use – Sweden not included)
