Sustainable development in the European Union — 2015 monitoring report of the EU Sustainable Development Strategy

Sustainable development in the European Union — 2015 monitoring report of the EU Sustainable Development Strategy

The EU Sustainable Development Strategy (EU SDS), launched by the European Council in 2001 and renewed in June 2006, aims for the continuous improvement of quality of life for current and future generations. The Eurostat monitoring report, published every two years, provides an objective, statistical picture of progress, based on the EU set of sustainable development indicators. Quantitative rules applied consistently across indicators, and visualised through weather symbols, provide an assessment of whether Europe is moving towards the objectives and targets defined in the strategy. The statistics presented in the report, covering the period from 1990 to 2014 (or the latest year available), illustrate the range of issues relevant for sustainable development, and should contribute to raising awareness of the opportunities and challenges lying ahead.
