ETC HE Report 2022/8: Review and Assessment of Available Information on Light Pollution in Europe

This report presents summarised information on the status of light pollution in the 38 EEA member states, based on published literature and remote sensing data of artificial light emissions at night. It aims to assess the current knowledge on light pollution and its adverse impacts on human health, biodiversity and ecosystems as part of the Zero Pollution Monitoring Assessment. Furthermore, an analysis of the legislative basis illustrates the political progress made to mitigate light pollution, especially within the EU countries. A spatial and temporal comparison of artificial light emission levels gives insight into the current status of light pollution.
