The EEA’s environmental performance has been continuously improving since 2004. In 2007, the agency reached all its EMAS targets, including those on electricity and paper consumption. Other achievements  include buying 100 % green electricity, using virtual servers, state-of-the-art cooling in our server room, as well as offsetting CO2 emissions from travelling.

The European EMAS awards are given by the Directorate General Environment of the European Commission. This year’s awards focused on energy consumption, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and energy efficiency. EU countries nominated their national winners for the European awards. A total of 32 organisations were nominated in five different categories. As it is based in Copenhagen, the EEA was nominated by Denmark and won the national award for Denmark under the public administration category.
