    Goals / Remit

    The Environment Agency Austria (EAA) is the expert authority of the federal government in Austria for environmental protection and environmental control. The EAA emerged in 1999 from the Ministry of Environment and became a state owned limited liability Company with no government structure within the organization.
    As Austria´s most important environmental expert organisation institution and one of Europe's leading environmental consultants we stand for a transformation of the economy and society to ensure sustainable living. The main tasks of the Agency are: (i) Assessment of the state of the environment and of its changes and trends, including the “National State of the Environment Report” to the Austrian Parliament; (ii) Development of measures to avoid/reduce environmental impacts; (iii) Providing expert knowledge in the process of planning and implementation of environmental policy decisions; (iv) Contributing to the implementation and enforcement of environmental laws;
