Abstract

For the third time in a row, WIFO presents a series of key indicators designed to provide transparent and easily accessible information on issues of climate change, energy use and economic performance in Austria. In doing so, WIFO emphasises the need to decarbonise the energy system in order to mitigate climate change. This edition is extended by indicators depicting the input of minerals by selected production sectors in order to draw attention to the resource base of the economy. In addition, the study goes "beyond GDP" with a view to measuring sustainability using function-based indicators for Austria.
