  • Mercury pollution remains a problem in Europe and globally
    [Publicat la: 19/09/2018]

    Historical and current emissions of mercury continue to present a significant risk to the environment and human health, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today. The main source of new mercury emissions in Europe is coal burning but about half of the mercury deposited in Europe’s environment originates from outside Europe.

  • Vote for your favourite WaterPIX finalist photos
    [Publicat la: 15/09/2018]

    The WaterPIX photo competition, organised by the European Environment Agency (EEA), has reached its last stage with 49 finalist photos. A public online vote that starts today will decide the winner of the Public Choice Award.

  • Europe continues to phase out substances harmful to the ozone layer under the Montreal Protocol
    [Publicat la: 14/09/2018]

    Overall efforts to reduce the use of chemicals harming the ozone layer across the European Union continued in 2017 and the EU has already achieved its goals on the phase-out of ozone-depleting substances under the Montreal Protocol, according to the latest data released today by the European Environment Agency (EEA).

  • Water in Europe means life, health, food, leisure, energy and more
    [Publicat la: 30/08/2018]

    Europe's freshwater and marine resources may seem limitless but they are under increasing pressure from pollution, over-exploitation and climate change. The European Environment Agency's (EEA) Signals 2018 explores the state and trends of Europe’s waters, asking how we can ensure healthy rivers, lakes, groundwater resources and seas for future generations.

  • Integrating circular economy and bioeconomy would improve sustainability in Europe
    [Publicat la: 27/08/2018]

    Europe uses natural resources unsustainably and the European Union has put in place policies on circular economy and bioeconomy in response. A new European Environment Agency (EEA) report argues that implementing these two concepts in tandem, by applying specific design principles within a systemic approach, would improve resource efficiency and reduce environmental pressures.

  • Air pollution: agriculture and transport emissions continue to pose problems in meeting agreed limits
    [Publicat la: 09/07/2018]

    Emissions from agriculture and transport continue to pose problems for European Union Member States in meeting EU and United Nations air pollution limits, according to updated data published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) today. While emissions of most air pollutants remain on a downward trend, ammonia emissions continued to rise in 2016.

  • Countries give only limited information on the results of their policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
    [Publicat la: 05/07/2018]

    Most national policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Europe target energy consumption and energy supply, while economic and regulatory instruments are the most common means of cutting emissions, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today. The report also reveals that EU Member States report the actual effects and costs for only a small number of their policies and measures.

  • European waters getting cleaner, but big challenges remain
    [Publicat la: 03/07/2018]

    Despite progress in improving the quality of Europe’s lakes, rivers, coastal waters and groundwater sources, pollution, structures like dams, and over-abstraction remain top threats to their long-term health. A vast majority of Europe’s water bodies still fail to meet the European Union’s minimum target for ‘good status’, according to a European Environment Agency ‘state of water’ report published today.

  • Product reuse and longer lifespans hold untapped potential to cut waste in Europe
    [Publicat la: 25/06/2018]

    Reuse of products can reduce material demand and prevent waste, which are important aspects of EU waste policy and essential for achieving a circular economy. However, current approaches to promote reuse in Member States are diverse and rely mostly on voluntary arrangements, according to a European Environment Agency report, published today. While reuse is an established market model for some products, such as cars, similar practices are still in their infancy for most other product groups.

  • New data collected by citizens: Cigarette butts and filters the most common pieces of litter on Europe’s beaches
    [Publicat la: 08/06/2018]

    The European Environment Agency (EEA) has released new data about litter found on Europe’s beaches. Based on nearly 700,000 collected items, disposable plastics are the biggest contributor to marine litter, with cigarette butts and filters being the most commonly found individual items. The new data has been collected by volunteers using the EEA’s Marine LitterWatch mobile app.
