The European Environment Agency has released its report ‘The European environment – state and outlook 2015'. According to the document, Europeans enjoy cleaner air and water today, less waste is sent to landfill and more resources are recycled.

Despite these gains, Europe still faces a range of persistent and growing environmental challenges. In the future, for example energy- or traffic sytems must be transformed.
