  7. Budget indicators (1) • Area of ecologic agriculture in relation to total agriculture area (%) • Biologic treatment of organic waste (tonne) • Use of printing/copying paper (sheets) • Purchase of ecologic foods in relation to total foods (%) • Protected land area in relation to total land area (%) • Area of productive forest maintained according to FSC or corresponding in relation to total productive forest (%) • Nitrogen and phosphorus emissions to the Mörrum river (tonne)

  8. Budget indicators (2) • Share of city-close pastureland owned by the municipality that is grazed (%) • Emissions of fossil CO2 per inhabitant (kg/inh) • Use of electricity per inhabitant (kWh/inh) • Number of cyclists per day in a measuring point (no.) • Number of travels per year by public transports in the city (no.) • Number of travels per year by public transports in the county (no.) • Use of mineral oil for heating in the municipal administration (m3) • Emissions of fossil CO2 from transports in the municipal administration (tonne)

  9. Type of indicators • Geographical indicators • Public city transports (journeys with public city buses/year) • Area of ecologic agriculture in relation to total agriculture area (%) • Common indicators • Fossil carbon dioxide emissions from transports and service (tonnes CO2/year) • Use of oil for heating (m3) • Sector specific indicators • Nitrogen and phosphorus emissions to the Mörrum river drainage area (tonnes/year)

  10. Presentation of annual account

  11. Environmental report

  12. Challenges with ecoBUDGET • The terminology • Integration with other steering documents • Internal/ external audit • Too flexible system • Management system

  13. Advantages with ecoBUDGET • Continuous arena for environmentaldiscussions • Financial integration gives status • Systematic in planning, implementation and follow-up of the environmental results • Enhances the knowledge • Cross-departmental contacts • Flexible system
