European Environment Agency

The European Environment Agency (EEA) is an agency of the European Union that delivers knowledge and data to support Europe’s environment and climate goals.

What is the Agency’s main purpose?

Our core tasks are defined in the founding EU regulation and include: 

  • supporting policy development and key global processes;
  • offering analytical expertise;
  • providing and maintaining an efficient reporting infrastructure for national and international data flows.

In collaboration with our partner network, Eionet, we inform decision-makers and the public about the state of Europe’s environment, climate change and wider sustainability issues. Compliance and enforcement of EU legislation are beyond our responsibility and are the sole responsibility of the European Commission.

Die Europäischen Umweltagentur (European Environment Agency) hat einige wenige Inhalte auch auf deutsch. Für den Zugang zu allen Produkten und Wissensdatenbanken ist die englische Seite zu nutzen.
