The European Environment Agency (EEA) aims to be a climate-neutral and resource efficient organisation and contribute to the European Union’s (EU) ambition of becoming climate neutral by 2050.

Our environmental management system, registered under the EU’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), has led to considerable reductions in paper consumption and CO2 emissions from business to travel and meetings. The EEA’s electricity supply is also 100 % renewable and mainly powered by wind energy. 

Greenhouse gas neutral by 2030

The EEA aims to become a climate-neutral organisation by 2030. To reach this net zero ambition, we are committed to:

  • further decarbonise operations and improve energy efficiency;
  • leverage the Agency's data, experience and knowledge to manage environmental performance;
  • engage staff in the sustainable transition by encouraging them to share and implement ideas to improve environmental performance;
  • offset CO2 emissions related to business and guest travel.

We also support other European agencies to embed environmental sustainability across organisations and operations.

EEA' s new donation policy

In an effort to give IT and office equipment that is no longer used at the EEA a second life, the EEA has adopted a new donation policy.

If you are an association, NGO or local authority, and would like to be notified when the EEA is donating used IT and/or office equipment, have a look at these documents, and express your interest!

The call will be open until October 2027.
