  3. Water Resources: Information on water quality, usage, and availability, including indicators on water stress and the efficiency of water use in agriculture and industry.
  4. Biodiversity: Data on species diversity, protected areas, and ecosystems, assessing the status and trends of biodiversity conservation.
  5. Waste Management: Statistics on waste generation, recycling rates, and the management of hazardous waste.
  6. Energy Consumption: Metrics on energy production, consumption, and efficiency, as well as the share of renewable energy in the energy mix.
  7. Material Flows: Indicators on the use of materials and resources, including resource productivity and the environmental impact of material extraction and consumption.
