This report analyses the driving forces behind the development of eco-industries in Europe and the measures that can support this development. It highlights
the leadership played by many European companies in a certain number of environmental goods and services and emphasises the significance the sector plays
as one of the biggest industrial sectors in Europe. It points out that while some sub-sectors are maturing and their growth is beginning to slow down others are
growing rapidly. It also draws attention to the role played by the EU as a major driving force in the development of the sector.
