Data at your fingertips: Environment at a Glance platform launched

This new OECD platform for environmental indicators gives access to recent data through interactive graphics and provides trends on major environmental issues. The indicators help track environmental performance and compare country progress.

This new web format for Environment at a Glance Indicators provides real-time interactive on-line access to the latest comparable OECD-country data on the environment from the OECD Core Set of Environmental Indicators – a tool to evaluate environmental performance in countries and to track the course towards sustainable development. The web version allows users to play with the data and graphics, download and share them, and consult and download thematic web-books. These indicators provide key messages on major environmental trends in areas such as climate change, biodiversity, water resources, air quality, circular economy and ocean (forthcoming). They will be accompanied by a short Environment at a Glance report that presents a digest of the key messages stemming from the indicators.
