Monitoring the “greening” of the economy

Within the framework of the project “Monitoring the greening of the economy in the implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement”, which was implemented with the support of the Renaissance Foundation, it was determined which priority actions on the implementation of the Association Agreement with Ukraine on the greening of the economy and the mobilization of efforts to implement them. right now? It was found that it is expedient to introduce monitoring of the “greening” of the economy. Such monitoring involves the definition of indicators for “landscaping”.
It should be noted that indicators and indicators have already been proposed by UNEP, the OECD and other international organizations. For example, UNEP has formed 3 main blocks of green economy indicators, including:
– indicators of the transformation of the economy (for example, changes in investments: investments in renewable energy sources, public transport, etc.);
– indicators of the efficiency of the use of resources (materials, energy, water, land per unit of output, total or GDP per capita); indicators of progress and well-being (education, health, social protection systems, etc.).
The OECD has developed a system of green growth indicators, including
– assessment of socio-economic parameters of the productivity of the use of natural resources,
– assessment of environmental activities.
It should be noted that a comparative analysis of European indicators is being carried out to determine which of them are most adapted to Ukraine and for their further improvement and implementation in various sectors of the economy. First of all, in the industry. We hope that the industrialists and entrepreneurs will get an effective mechanism for analyzing the level of “greening” their own technological processes.
