In this paper we try to highlight the conceptual and strategic importance of the resource productivity, since a most important lead indicator for implementing and monitoring all the latest strategies of sustainable economic growth in the European Union and consequently, in Romania. However, the quite poor evolution of this indicator in Romania, with data available from the NIS System of Sustainable Development Indicators for the period 2000-2012 may be analysed separately for the pre-accession and post-accession to the EU periods. Our research shows a recent trend of slight recovery and increase of the RP in Romania that calls for further analyses in order to see which the latest positive potential factors for a resource productivity increase are.
