Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Based on your enquiry, I am not sure how familiar you are with the EEA’s working remit. I have therefore included a brief description of it here:
The EEA aims to support the development and implementation of sound environmental policies in the EU and other EEA member countries by delivering timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-makers and the public. This is accomplished by collecting environmental data through EIONET (the European Environmental Information and Observation Network, EIONET is a network of environmental bodies and institutions active in the EEA member countries. Based on the compiled data the EEA produces environmental reports and indicators, which assist the European Community in its attempt to improve the environment and move towards sustainability in Europe. For additional information about the activities of the EEA, please consult the EEA homepage:

As you may see from this description, the EEA produces reports about the state and trends of the environment in Europe, and unfortunately our mandate does not include legislative matters.

However, at this link you can find EEA's Report SOER 2015 — The European environment State and Outlook, where you will find the EEA's perspective on global megatrends, sectorial information, briefings, country information and more.

Should you have any specific questions about the contents, please feel free to come back to us.

Best regards,
