Environment, public utilities

Environmental statistics covers data on natural resources (e.g. mineral resources, water resources), the load of the environment (e.g. air pollution, sewage treatment, waste management), environmental quality (quality of e.g. air, water or soil), nature protection (e.g. protected areas, protected species) and environmental protection (e.g. environmental investments, environmental expenditures, environmental taxes). It shows the state and the load of the environment, and quantifies efforts against the load of the environment. Public utilities statistics covers statistical data on public utilities (electricity, gas, purchased heat, drinking water, sewage, waste) in settlements.

Key figures

Emissions of carbon dioxide

Indicator description

Emissions of carbon dioxide in a particular year (excluding carbon dioxide from biomass).
Source of data: Summary Tables (STADAT)
Last data for period: 2021

Emissions of suspended dust with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm

Indicator description
