Methodological Development of the EU Composite Index on Environmental Pressures
To make the human impact on the environment more transparent for a non specialist audience, the European Commission develops a composite indicator on environmental pressures. The Ecologic institute supports the development process by drafting a methodological report, which summarizes the methodological choices and their consequences. Additionally papers for the communication of the index are supplied.
Together with SERI the Ecologic Institute develops a complete documentation of all methodological choices, their alternatives and the reasoning behind them. The report will cover the choice of the theoretical framework, the choice of indicators and the choices of the methodologies for aggregation, weighting andnormalisation.
Additionally some communication papers will be drafted to disseminate the index to different stakeholder groups. The Ecologic Institute also develops an online media concept for presenting the index on the internet.
