The European Environment Agency (EEA) is an agency of the European Union that aims to provide sound, independent information on the environment.

The regulation establishing the EEA was adopted by the European Union in 1990. It came into force in late 1993 and work started in earnest in 1994. The regulation also established the European environment information and observation network (Eionet).[1]
