Survey of resource efficiency policies and approaches
The survey aimed to collect, analyse and disseminate information about national experience in developing and implementing resource efficiency policies, and to facilitate sharing of experience and good practice.
Information on resource efficiency policies in the countries was provided by Eionet’s national focal points and national reference centres for sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and resources, following the approach used in the country assessments in The European environment – state and outlook 2010 (SOER 2010).
A standardised set of questions was used to elicit information on the policies, targets and indicators in place; priority resources; the main policy drivers and institutional setup; and knowledge gaps and information needs. In response, 31 countries provided information, including 25 countries of the EU-27.
To present the findings from each national self-assessment, the EEA has prepared a set of country profiles which are available via links below. Information is current as of Spring 2011.
