The Eco-Innovation Observatory functions as a platform for the structured collection and analysis of
an extensive range of eco-innovation information, gathered from across the European Union and key
economic regions around the globe, providing a much-needed integrated information source on ecoinnovation
for companies and innovation service providers, as well as providing a solid decisionmaking
basis for policy development.
The Observatory approaches eco-innovation as a persuasive phenomenon present in all economic
sectors and therefore relevant for all types of innovation, defining eco-innovation as:
“Eco-innovation is any innovation that reduces the use of natural resources and decreases the
release of harmful substances across the whole life-cycle”.
