Abstract

The Outcome Indicator Framework for the UK Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan calls for the development of an indicator to measure the “overseas environmental impacts of UK consumption of key commodities.” This report describes the work undertaken to date and the work planned to take place over the coming months in order to release this indicator as an experimental statistic following completion of the project in August 2021. It is planned that this will feed into Outcome Indicator Reporting for 2022.
