Accessing EUREAPA

Footprint Indicators

Practical examples




Accessing EUREAPA Data

The EUREAPA tool has been designed to help EU policy-makers and Civil Society access and manipulate a vast amount of information relating to the environmental impact of consumption and production, in order to prioritise and evaluate intervention into particular areas.

The software contains tables from national economic accounts and trade statistics with data from environmental and footprint accounts.  Using EUREAPA, you can look at the impacts of consumption activities in the context of lifestyles or national differences. It will allow you to identify differences in footprints across countries, from consumer and producer perspectives, and also to break down environmental impacts along global supply chains to identify footprint hot-spots associated with the food people eat, the clothes they buy, the products they consume or the way they travel.

Using EUREAPA you can:

View data for 14 different indicators.

  5 Green House Gas Footprints:

CF CO2 Combustion
CF CO2 Process
CF FGases
CF Total

6 Ecological Footprints: 3 Water Footprints:
Select from 45 regions you want to view data for, or work on via a scenario. These include all the EU member states, 16 important trading partners and regions of the world, other countries are included in Annexes of climate change agreements and the rest of the world.

View data on a total or per capita basis.

Export data as charts and tables.

Explore link between consumption products and production sectors, view the contribution of production sectors to each of the broad consumption areas at a national level e.g. Housing, Food, Transport, Consumables and Services.

Produce a high level scenario to model the effects of future policy e.g. change the population, the general affluence (volume of spend), proportion of spend on high level consumption categories and production efficiency, by either describing a percentage yearly growth rate, uploading a file of values per year or making a 2050 target level.

Create your own consumption scenarios e.g. by making changes to population, the total volume of spend and how this is shared between high level consumption categories. Or describe a more detailed spend breakdown within each category e.g. to investigate scenarios such as a shift towards a low meat diet or a modal shift in transport.
