The Czech Republic had made progress in decoupling economic growth from freshwater abstractions, energy consumption, GHG and other air pollutants emissions. However, its strong industrial base and reliance on coal place the country among the most energy- and carbon-intensive in the OECD and air pollution was a serious health concern. Progressing towards sustainable development will require strengthening political commitment to a low-carbon economy and implementing more cost-effective environmental policies.

This was the third Environmental Performance Review of the Czech Republic. It evaluated progress towards sustainable development and green growth, with special features on waste, materials management and circular economy and sustainable urban development.
