PPP scan Stocks

Each capital is made up of a number of stocks. These are chosen on the basis of existing theoretical insights. Requirements are subsequently imposed on these stocks which describe the long-term goals for the various stocks. The requirements are expressed in qualitative terms. In contrast to the stocks – which represent more or less fixed values calculated on a scientific basis – the requirements are largely determined by the context (the prevailing pattern of values and standards) and the tier of government concerned in the policy proposals and plans. The requirements may also change over time, precisely because they are determined by stakeholders.

The table below gives an overview of the stocks per capital:



Social Participation

The aim is to guarantee that citizens irrespective of gender, age, ethnic background or religious affiliation can participate and can continue to participate in society and not be excluded from it, and that citizens themselves make an active contribution to society (voluntary work, social clubs, social organisations).

There are two key aims. In the first place that the soil is clean (no heavy metals in the soil, no over-fertilization, no acidification) and in addition that the essential soil function are protected and maintained. This not only involves focusing attention on contamination of the soil but also on the issue of water depletion.

For the air stock the long-term objective is that the air is clean (free from fine particulates and nitrogen oxides, and, no smog days) and that we are climate neutral.

The aim is to preserve biodiversity and to maintain the existing nature and, where possible, to strengthen it.

Surface water

The key aim is that the surface water is clean. In other words, that the chemical and biological quality must be good.

The groundwater must be clean (no contamination from heavy metals, pesticides, over-fertilization or acidification) and no more groundwater must be abstracted than can be replenished (the stock must be conserved).

The key issue is the perception of the landscape whereby the ambition is that the identity of the landscape must be protected and, where possible, strengthened.

Spatial location conditions

The business sector makes sufficient profit which enables it to invest. In this way the productive capacity of the region is maintained.

Knowledge forms an important competitive factor in the modern knowledge economy. This is why companies invest both in keeping a strong focus on employee knowledge development and in the constant modernization of their products and production processes and/or service provision concepts. The regional knowledge infrastructure is of a high quality and supports the business community.

Energy, raw and auxiliary materials

Less energy is consumed both by companies and by consumers. The energy consumed is sustainably generated. Investments by companies are aimed at reducing the use of non-renewable raw and auxiliary materials. Less waste is produced and the waste that is produced is recycled.

The labour market is in balance and functions well. This means: no unemployment and no vacancies that are difficult to fill. The whole work force is well qualified. The available labour supply from women, older people, and ethnic minorities is used as fully as possible. The work is healthy.

Economic structure

The regional economy is configured in such a way that it is competitive, both in the national and international markets. The regional economic structure is constantly being regenerated and strengthened by the arrival of new enterprises (starter companies and enterprises newly locating to the area).

Companies, facilities, institutions and economic centres are easily accessible or connected via road, rail, water, air, and ICT.
