NEC Metric Industry Handbooks

One of the best features of the NEC metric is its versatility. The methodology can be applied to any object as long as there is an underlying economic activity and regardless of related product or service, localization, legal form (informal, not for profit, for profit, company, holding, group of companies, etc.) and funding means (equity, debt, bond, grant, etc.). In 2019, the NEC methodology has been applied to more than 2,000 issuers across all sectors.
