

ETCs: consortia of national institutions
work under contract with the European
Environment Agency (EEA)
assistance within a particular topic (resources
and waste in our case)
existed since 1997

England and Wales
Danish
EPA
Wuppertal Institute
Estonian Environment
Information Centre
Austrian EPA
Regional Environmental Centre
Italian EPA

‘The EEA aims to support sustainable
development and help to achieve
significant and measurable
improvement in Europe’s environment
through the provision of timely,
targeted, relevant and reliable
information to the policy making
agents and the public’

Eionet is the network of the EEA:

National Focal Points
–

National Reference Centres
–

(one in each country)
(experts within a field)
European Topic Centres
–
(resource and waste management, air, water,
terrestrial environment as well as nature and
biodiversity)

Work areas
• Data processing and data management
• Indicators and fact sheets
• Support to policy processes
• Policy analysis and assessment
• Knowledge sharing
• Support to member countries

Data processing and data
management

The ETCs do not collect data

Data from Eurostat, DGEnv, Basel Convention

Regulation on Waste Statistics important in the
future

Close cooperation with DGEnv and Eurostat
– Overlapping reporting obligations
