Definition Report -Indicator Effects Toxic Substances (Itox)

Definitierapport Indicator Effecten Toxische Stoffen


The possibilities are studied for development of an indicator Itox, which indicates the impact of toxic compounds on ecosystem health on a regional scale. Itox can be used as an alternative Environmental Policy Performance Indicator for the theme of Dispersion (EPPI-D) with respect to the environmental quality. In future, global Itox-values may also be applicable within the Global Environmental Outlooks. Based on the results of the present definition study, a plan of approach is proposed which enables calculation of an annual indicator values, e.g. Itox-1996.
