The publication Sustainable Development Indicators for Poland 2015 presents a proposal of Polish official statistics in terms of a set of indicators to monitor sustainable development of the country. The indicators are grouped in four domains: social, economic, environmental, and institutional-political. Areas were differentiated within the domains, reflecting the objectives and priorities of sustainable development contained in the national strategic documents.
The elaborated set of indicators will be further developed and modified in subsequent years, so it could fully correspond to the binding strategic documents and reflect the idea of sustainable development in national terms and conditions.
The publication presents indicators to assess the state of green economy in Poland. They have been included in the four core areas: natural asset base, environmental and resource productivity of the economy, environmental quality of life as well as economic opportunities and policy responses. The report is complemented with context indicators, which are a source of basic information about the socio-economic situation of the country.
The report presents a diagnosis indicating from which point the world begins implementation of the 2030 Agenda Goals. It provides an overview of the 17 Goals using data currently available. It thus makes it possible to determine the greatest global challenges. The report is therefore a starting point for further global action aimed at fulfilling its obligations under 2030 Agenda so that no one is left behind.
This publication builds on Eurostat’s long experience in monitoring the EU Sustainable Development Strategy. It provides a statistical glance at the current situation in the EU and its Member States, but now from the viewpoint of the SDGs. The publication is based on a limited number of indicators which are relevant for the EU and aims to capture the broader ambition of each SDG. In total, 51 indicators are presented, mainly produced and disseminated by Eurostat. For each indicator the publication presents data for the most recent available year for the EU-28 and the EU Member States and trends (in general from 2000) for the EU-28.
The EU Sustainable Development Strategy (launched by the European Council in 2001 and renewed in June 2006.) aims for the continuous improvement of quality of life for current and future generations. The Eurostat monitoring report, published every two years, provides a statistical picture of progress based on the EU set of sustainable development indicators. The statistics presented in the report cover the period from 1990, illustrate the range of issues relevant for sustainable development and should contribute to raising awareness of the opportunities and challenges still lying ahead.

The Green Growth Strategy adopted in 2011 by OECD provides guidance on how to achieve economic growth and development, while preventing costly environmental damage and inefficient resource use. The report Towards Green Growth? Tracking Progress attempts to evaluate progress that countries have made since the adoption of the Strategy in aligning economic and environmental priorities.
The publication How's Life? describes the key elements that shape people’s well-being in OECD and partner countries.

The report, in addition to the results of the latest research, also shows the changes that have occurred over time and how the distribution of well-being among different groups of the population has changed.
