The EEA takes stock annually of progress towards the 8th Environment Action Programme (8th EAP) objectives on the basis of a set of 28 headline indicators and corresponding targets. These were selected by the European Commission after consultation with stakeholders, EU Member States and the EEA, and they represent key aspects of the 8th EAP. They were outlined in the European Commission Communication on the 8th EAP monitoring framework

The EEA will assess progress towards the 8th EAP objectives in annual reports published every December. The first report was published in December 2023.
