Support the EU in achieving its climate goals

ECNO exists to ensure the EU is set up for climate neutrality success by regularly assessing economy-wide, on-the-ground progress and providing an independent check of the EU policy processes that drive it.

Offer a data-driven look at what underlies headline emission trends

ECNO aims to tell a comprehensive story of where the EU stands on its journey to climate neutrality, applying indicators that track structural, real-world changes across 13 building blocks of a climate neutral future.

ECNO's mission

Inspire more robust progress monitoring and enhance transparency
