Infographics — 18 Nov 2013
EEA infographics provide visual presentations of the issues affecting Europe’s environment. They highlight factors contributing to environmental change as well as the impacts of environmental degradation.
Infographic D source code How are the environment and our well-being and health connected? — 28 May 2014
Natural resources fuel our production and consumption, and create wealth and jobs, contributing to our quality of life and well-being. But our level of resource consumption is undermining our ecosystems’ capacity to provide for us in the future.
Infographic Why should we care about air pollution?
Air pollution impacts human health, contributes to climate change and damages ecosystems. Here are some of the pollutants the ‘Air quality in Europe – 2013 report’ investigates and their potential impacts.
Infographic Many factors contribute to air pollution concentration levels
Emission levels are not the only factor that determines concentrations of air pollutants. Factors like the weather, chemical transformations in the air, and transport of pollutants from outside Europe all play a role. This means that a reduction in emissions of a pollutant do not always translate to an equivalent reduction in concentrations of that pollutant.
Infographic Many Europeans are exposed to harmful levels of air pollution
Up to a third of Europeans living in cities are exposed to air pollutant levels exceeding EU air quality standards. And around 90 % of Europeans living in cities are exposed to levels of air pollutants deemed damaging to health by the World Health Organization’s more stringent guidelines.
Infographic How can we make our economy circular and resource efficient? — 03 Jun 2014
Currently, we are using more resources than our planet can produce in a given time. We need to reduce the amount of waste we generate and the amount of materials we extract.
Infographic Europe’s waste streams — 13 Jun 2014
In total, about 2500 million tonnes of waste was generated in the EU-28 and Norway in 2010. Here is an overview of where the waste came from and what it was composed of.
Infographic D source code How can we reduce and make better use of waste? — 27 May 2014
The best way to reduce the environmental impacts of waste is to prevent it in the first place. Many items that we throw away could also be re-used, and others can be recycled for raw materials.
Infographic How much of our municipal waste do we recycle? — 13 Jun 2014
Much of the waste we throw away can be recycled. Recycling benefits the environment by diverting waste away from landfills and by providing raw materials for new products. Recycling can also encourage innovation and create jobs.
Infographic What are the sources of food waste in Europe? — 13 Jun 2014
Around one third of the food produced globally is lost or wasted. Food waste represents a substantial loss of other resources such as land, water, energy and labour.
Infographic How does the food we buy, eat and don’t eat impact the environment? — 28 May 2014
Before reaching our plates, food needs to be produced, processed, packaged, transported and distributed. Every step uses up resources and generates more waste and pollution.
Infographic Why should we avoid sending waste to landfills?
Infographic What are the sources and impacts of marine litter? — 13 Jun 2014
Increasing amounts of litter are ending up in the world’s oceans and harming the health of ecosystems, killing animals and putting human health at risk. The solution lies in waste prevention and better waste management on land.
Infographic Troff document Reducing environmental impacts of transport
Several EU targets have been set to reduce the environmental impacts of transport in Europe, including its greenhouse gas emissions. The transport sector’s targets are part of the EU’s overall goal to reduce greenhouse gas emission by 80-95% by 2050.
Infographic Transport in cities
Many European cities are rapidly transforming urban transport. However, while cycling and efficient public transport are becoming the norm in some urban areas, Europe’s transport sector is still a major contributor to excessive levels of greenhouse gases, air pollution and noise. EEA
