Environment domain of statistics covers such essential topics as air and water pollution, emissions of greenhouse gases and climate change, biodiversity and protected areas, forestry and agricultural environmental performance, use of fertilizers, environmental protection expenditure, waste management and others. On this page you can find relevant data on all the topics mentioned above which is provided by reliable sources including UN, OECD, Eurostat, Earth Policy Institute, PBL, EDGAR etc. By looking through ready-made dashboards or by creating your own ones on the basis of available datasets investigate global environmental trends. For example you may find that global CO2 emissions increased by 37 times during the last 100 years, through the same period global temperature deviations from 1951-1980 average were constantly rising to reach a peak of +0.65 degrees Celsius in 2005, as of 2012, Switzerland has the strongest environmental performance in the world according to the Environmental Performance Index. These and many other tendencies of the global environment can be easily accessed through the presented page.

Clean Air, Healthy Lungs

Air pollution occurs when chemical, physical or biological substances alter the natural characteristics of the atmosphere, potentially leading to respiratory and other diseases that can be lethal. Home furnaces, automobiles, industrial plants, and forest fires are the main sources of air pollution worldwide.Among the pollutants of greatest public health concern are particulate matter-including some forms of smoke, soot, dust, salt, acids, and metals - carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. Not all air pollution is manmade. Natural weather events, such as hurricanes, can also significantly deteriorate air quality, for...

CO2 Emissions of Newly Registered Cars in Europe

Information that EU member states submit annually per Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 to the European Commission and onward to the European Environment Agency (EEA) on newly registered passenger cars provide a unique opportunity to analyze CO2 emissions. The data reveal thought-provoking trends from the perspective of purchasing patterns of lowest to highest emission cars and the corresponding potential contribution of each make and model to air pollution.Premium-class sport cars are the ‘dirtiest’ based on CO2 emissions, with Bugatti vehicles—each emitting more than half a kilogram of CO2 per kilometer (km)—at the top. Yet, the potential...

The Social Progress Index

   The Social Progress Index is the result of a two-year process guided by a stellar team of experts which includes, among the others, renowned economists Hernando de Soto and Michael Porter and the president of The Rockefeller Foundation Dr. Judith Rodin. The Index synthesizes a huge body of research to identify the dimensions of performance of societies and measure the social progress comprehensively and rigorously.    The Index has been structured around 12 components and 54 distinct indicators consolidated into three dimensions of Social Progress: Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity. The first dimension, Basic...
