Abstrakt: Eco-efficiency is one of the means by which sustainable development is sought to be implemented. In the last few years the focus has been, in many ways, placed on the European “regions”, and hence the promotion of their competitiveness – and, by this means, their eco-efficiency – has become a central issue in the regions concerned. The Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), the Southeast Finland Regional Environment Centre, the Regional Council of Kymenlaakso and the Thule Institute at the University of Oulu conducted (1 September 2002 – 31 December 2004) a LIFE project named “The Ecoefficiency of Regions – Case Kymenlaakso (ECOREG)”. The project was financed by the European Community’s LIFE programme (support obtained from LIFE-Environment) and the Finnish Ministry of the Environment. The goal of this project was to demonstrate the concept of ecoefficiency and eco-efficiency evaluation on a regional scale, taking the Kymenlaakso region located in Southeast Finland as an example. This current report presents the key results of the ECOREG project particularly focusing on the indicators and measuring of regional eco-efficiency (monitoring and evaluation mechanism), the processes and methods utilised in the project as well as reproducibility and transferability of the ECOREG results in other parts of Finland and Europe. The ECOREG project has a website in Finnish and English at http://www.ymparisto.fi/syke/ecoreg, http://www.environment.fi/ syke/ecoreg.
