image of Environment at a Glance 2013

This book includes key environmental indicators endorsed by OECD Environment Ministers and major environmental indicators from the OECD Core Set. These indicators reflect environmental progress made since the early 1990s and thus contribute to measuring environmental performance. Organised by issues such as climate change, air pollution, biodiversity, waste or water resources, they provide essential information for all those interested in the environment and in sustainable development.

Industrial and hazardous waste

Some waste streams, such as hazardous waste, nuclear waste and industrial waste are of particular concern since they entail serious environmental risks if badly managed. Hazardous waste is mainly generated by industrial activities. The amounts produced and their composition are largely driven by production patterns. Their impacts on the environment relate mainly to toxic contamination of soil, water and air.
