Think Sustainable Europe
The first pan-European network of sustainability think tanks

With the urgent need for evidence-based decision making in Europe, at the end of 2019 IEEP brought together leading sustainability think tanks to form Think Sustainable Europe, a network dedicated to providing policymakers across the continent with sound, science-based analysis and recommendations.

The network’s strength lies in its capacity to monitor the implementation of the European Green Deal in the EU Member states and beyond.

Think Sustainable Europe is the idea generator behind Think2030. Through the platform, IEEP and other Think Sustainable Europe members produce evidence-based recommendations targeting EU policy-makers and stakeholders on a series of key sustainability topics.
