Systematisation and Determinability of Indicators of Resource Use at Company or Product Level
There are numerous approaches to measuring and assessing resource use in economies and companies. Sixteen approaches are systematized and for selected indicators from these approaches, the possibility of determining them at company or product level is exemplified. There are difficulties in the identification of data in particular in supply chains as well as in the calculation of indicators due to the lack of conversion factors and unclear methodological requirements. Therefore, the lack of determinability of the indicators hinders the application of these approaches.
