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.
