SDG 12 · Indicator
Nitrogen emissions embodied in imports
Ratings provide a visual representation of a country’s performance on the indicator.
Significant challenges remain
Major challenges remain
Emissions of reactive nitrogen embodied in imported goods and services. Reactive nitrogen corresponds here to emissions of ammonia, nitrogen oxides and nitrous oxide to the atmosphere, and of reactive nitrogen potentially exportable to water bodies, all of which can be harmful to human health and the environment.
The long-term objective for this indicator is a value of 0.
