Set up in 1974, the EEB is Europe’s largest network of environmental NGOs, bringing together around 140 civil society organisations from more than 30 European countries (virtually all EU Member States plus some accession and neighbouring countries), including a growing number of European networks, with a combined membership of an estimated 15 million people.

What makes the EEB unique?

The EEB is the only European umbrella organisation that covers such a large number of environmental policy issues and is at the same time open to membership for all bona fide NGOs active in the field of the environment. This makes the EEB a unique and unifying actor for the European environmental movement and gives it a strong voice in EU and international policy processes.
