Beyond GDP

Beyond GDP is an initiative of the European Commission for developing indicators that are as clear and appealing but more inclusive of environmental and social aspects of progress towards sustainable development goals (SDGs) than GDP.

The Commission stresses the need to develop clear metrics for measuring medium- and long-term economic and social progress.  Beyond GDP was established to clarify which indices are most appropriate for measuring progress and how these can best be integrated into the decision-making process and taken up by public debate.

Beyond GDP partners continue to work on improving the measures of progress, wealth and well-being.
