Goal 12: 3. Main Indicators

Key trends in “Responsible consumption and production” show the following evidence (Eurostat Report, pp 233 and ss):

  • Productivity of resources and energy has increased considerably over the past 15 years;
  • Consumption of toxic chemicals has fallen moderately in the long and short term;
  • The decline in average CO2 emissions per km for newly registered passenger cars has slowed in recent years;
  • Progress towards the EU’s energy-related 2020 targets has been mixed over the past years, putting their achievement at risk;
  • Trends in recycling and re-use of waste are favourable, but generation of non-mineral waste is on the rise again.

 

Goal 12’s attainment is monitored through the following main indicators: Source: EU SDG Indicator set 2019,, pp. 23-24:
