Science for environmental sustainability – new thematic report
The Joint Research Centre, as the European Commission's in-house science service, has released a new report on environmental sustainability providing a broad overview of its activities in this area.
The JRC informs EU policy-making with the best scientific and technical expertise available. Its multi-disciplinary approach is instrumental in addressing today's global environmental challenges and essential for delivering integrated advice to EU decision-making in areas such as environment, energy, climate, development, agriculture and regional development.
The report provides information on six areas: natural capital, ecosystem services and biodiversity, resource efficiency, sustainable urban living, climate change mitigation and adaptation and innovation for sustainability. More on the report here.
