Environmental Indicator Report 2016

The European Environmental Agency (EEA) Environmental indicator report 2016 gives a snapshot of progress made so far by the 28 EU Member States in meeting a selected number of EU policy objectives. These are relevant to achieving the three key priority objectives of the EU’s 7th Environment Action Programme: natural capital; resource-efficient, low-carbon economy, and people’s health and well-being, fields in which chemistry is already providing many solutions. The report complements the previously published European environment state and outlook 2015 (SOER) report. Among other evidence, the report shows that EU environmental policies have been more successful on reducing pressures on the environment, improving efficiency and meeting 2020 climate and energy targets than on reducing overall impacts on people’s health and well-being or on ensuring the resilience of natural systems.
