The EEB is the largest federation of environmental citizens’ organisations in Europe. It currently consists of over 150 member organisations in more than 30 countries (virtually all EU Member States plus some accession and neighbouring countries), including a growing number of European networks, and representing some 15 million individual members and supporters
Prosperity and Peace is secured for all, which depends on a rich, clean and healthy environment. Responsible societies respect the carrying capacity of the planet and preserve it for future generations, including its rich biodiversity. Effective environmental policies and sustainable development have priority over short-term objectives that only serve the current generation or certain sections of society.
The EEB stands for sustainable development, environmental justice, global equity, transparency, participatory democracy and shared but differentiated responsibilities. It promotes the principles of prevention, precaution and the polluter pays.
The EEB is the environmental voice of its members and European citizens. It focuses on influencing EU policymaking and implementation and assessment of its agreed policies. It aims to be effective by combining knowledge with representativeness, active involvement of its members and coalition building.
