The Czech Republic ranked eighth among the European Union countries in its assessment of sustainable development. This stems from the current Europe Sustainable Development Report, which measures national success in achieving the United Nations' 17 sustainable development goals.
According to the report, the Czech Republic ended up first among the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and also left some EU countries, such as Great Britain, Belgium or the Netherlands.
In addition to protecting the environment or reducing emissions, the report focuses on the other two pillars of sustainable development, namely social and economic development. As in the previous year, the Czech Republic has the lowest risk of poverty from EU countries. The ranking is also at the forefront of the long-term unemployment sub-category, which is the lowest of all European countries.
