EXIOBASE is a global, detailed Multi-Regional Environmentally Extended Supply-Use Table (MR-SUT) and Input-Output Table (MR-IOT). It was developed by harmonizing and detailing supply-use tables for a large number of countries, estimating emissions and resource extractions by industry. Subsequently the country supply-use tables were linked via trade creating an MR-SUT and producing a MR-IOTs from this. The MR-IOT that can be used for the analysis of the environmental impacts associated with the final consumption of product groups.
EXIOBASE3 is one of the most extensive EE-MRIO systems available worldwide. The data comes in two versions: a monetary version consistent with macro-economic accounts, and a hybrid mixed-unit version. EXIOBASE 3 builds upon the previous versions of EXIOBASE by using rectangular supply‐use tables (SUT) in a 163 industry by 200 products classification as the main building blocks. EXIOBASE 3 is the culmination of work in the FP7 DESIRE project and builds upon earlier work on EXIOBASE 2 in the FP7 CREEA project and EXIOBASE 1 of the FP6 EXIOPOL project.

A special issue of Journal of Industrial Ecology (Volume 22, Issue 3) describes the build process and some use cases of EXIOBASE 3.
Data updates are now housed on Zenodo for the monetary version: https://zenodo.org/record/3583071 . A version of EXIOBASE with disaggregated rest of the world regions EXIOBASE3rx is available at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.2654460 and includes land extensions to 2015. Work by ETH also provides a useful disaggregation of the rest of world countries with a greater coverage of extensions at http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3994795. When using any data, please ensure that credit and citation is given to the respective papers/authors.
The mixed unit version is available to download from this page

We are proud to present this booklet, the result of years of hard work. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that the total global environmental footprint – encompassing the carbon, water, land and material consumption footprint of various countries – has been compiled using one detailed, consistent and comprehensive global economic-environmental database.
