This report on Macro-economic material flow indicators for Flanders 2002-2018 prepared by Maarten Christis and An Vercalsteren (VITO) for CE Center | Circular Economy Policy Research Center provides background data for the update of four macro indicators key to monitoring the circular economy:
- domestic material consumption (DMC)
- direct material input (DMI)
- raw material consumption (RMC), and
- raw material input (RMI).
The update has been performed based on the most recently available data and extends up to and including the year 2018. The report concludes with a number of considerations on how these indicators can be used for policy.
