GLORIA MRIO database Release 055
Release date: 24 March 2022

The GLORIA model (Global Resource Input-Output Assessment) is a multi-regional input-output database that was built by the University of Sydney using the IELab infrastructure for the UN International Resource Panel (UN IRP).

GLORIA has 164 regions, 120 sectors each, supply-use transactions T, final demand y, value added v in 5 valuations (basic prices, trade margins, transport margins, taxes on products, subsidies on products) and a continuous time series for 1990-2020.

Accompanying satellite accounts (extensions), cover GHG emissions, materials, energy, air pollution, land use, water use, biodiversity, skills and employment. Footprint trends have been calculated for all satellites from 1990-2020.

This database has been created in the Global MRIO Lab – a branch of the NeCTAR Industrial Ecology Virtual Laboratories (IELabs, NeCTAR 2013; Lenzen et al. 2014a; Geschke and Hadjikakou 2017) – by a collaboration between the University of Sydney, the CSIRO, Universität Wien, and UNSW Sydney.
