image of OECD Environmental Performance Reviews: Spain 2015

The OECD Environmental Performance Review Programme provides independent assessments of countries’ progress in achieving their domestic and international environmental policy commitments, together with policy relevant recommendations. This report is the third OECD review of Spain’s environmental performance. It evaluates progress towards sustainable development and green growth, with a focus on biodiversity and the environmental performance of the private sector.

Reviews are conducted to promote peer learning, enhance governments’ accountability to each other and to the public, and improve countries’ environmental performance, individually and collectively. They are supported by a broad range of economic and environmental data. Each cycle of the Environmental Performance Reviews covers all OECD member countries and selected partner countries. The most recent reviews include: Iceland (2014), Sweden (2014), Colombia (2014).

Executive summary

Spain is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, with stunning coastal and terrestrial landscapes. From 2000, the Spanish economy was one of the most dynamic within the OECD, until the global economic crisis hit the country hard. The economy has since shown signs of stabilising and recovery programmes have opened up opportunities for greener, more sustainable growth.
