Goals / Remit

Set up in 1974, the EEB is Europe’s largest and most inclusive network of environmental citizens’ groups – and the only one that works on such a broad range of issues. We bring together over 160 civil society organisations from more than 35 European countries (virtually all EU Member States plus some accession and neighbouring countries), including a growing number of European networks, with a combined membership of an estimated 30 million people.
Our vision is of a better future where people and nature thrive together. The next generation deserves a healthy planet. We believe in a world where equal, just, peaceful and democratic societies can prosper. A world with rich biodiversity and a safe climate. A world where laws and policies promote health and wellbeing while respecting nature. We believe that Europe has a crucial role to play in building this future.

We advocate for progressive policies to create a better environment in the European Union and beyond. We stand for sustainable development, environmental justice, global equity, transparency and participatory democracy, and promote the principles of prevention, precaution and ‘polluter pays’.
The EEB tackles Europe’s most pressing environmental problems by agenda setting, monitoring, advising on and influencing the way the EU deals with these issues.
These include issues such as climate change, biodiversity, circular economy, air, water, soil, chemical pollution, as well as policies on industry, energy, agriculture, product design and waste prevention among others.
We are also active on overarching issues as sustainable development, good governance, participatory democracy and the rule of law in Europe and beyond.
While the primary focus of the EEB’s work is on the EU and its decision-making processes, we work also on wider regional and global processes, at the level of the UN and the OECD, in particular on the Global Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Furthermore, the EEB has increased its cooperation with environmental organisations in EU enlargement and neighbourhood countries, helping them to strengthen their national environmental laws and policies.

To achieve the above objectives, the EEB aims to promote knowledge and understanding of environmental and sustainable development issues with the general public, leading to mobilisation for continuous improvements of relevant policies. As this mobilisation is often led by the EEB’s members, the EEB works constantly to develop and maintain close relations with its members and provide targeted services with regard to information, co-ordination and representation. The EEB secretariat in Brussels also works in close co-operation with other environmental organisations and in coalitions with representatives of other interest groups.


The EEB follows and engages in a very broad range of EU policy areas relevant to environment and sustainable development, in line with the very broad range of policy areas addressed by our membership. We refer to our 2017 Work Programme which provides a fairly comprehensive overview of EEB’s interests, objectives, priorities and activities. The EEB’s 2017 Work Programme can be found here:
