The European environment: state and outlook 2015: a synthesis report is a 2015 report, published by the European Union.

From the executive summary:

In 2015, Europe stands roughly halfway between the initiation of EU environmental policy in the early 1970s and the EU's 2050 vision of 'living well within the limits of the planet'. Underlying this vision is a recognition that Europe's economic prosperity and well-being is intrinsically linked to its natural environment - from fertile soils to clean air and water.

The challenges, however, are still considerable: agriculture, fisheries, tourism, urban sprawl.
