About NCESD

The National Center for the Environment and Sustainable Development (NCESD) is a Legal Entity of Private Law supervised by the Ministry of Environment and Energy, with an institutional framework defining its Purpose of establishment, the Objectives to be attained and its operation

NCESD is a strategic adviser of the Greek State on environmental issues and sustainable development. It supports the State in the development and implementation of sound and effective policy in the fields of environment and sustainable development. Furthermore, it contributes as a know-how and coordinating mechanism in achieving horizontal integration of the environmental dimension into the developmental and sectoral policy, planning and programs.

It was formed in 2000 (PD 325 / A / 8-12-2000). It merged with IGME with the Joint Ministerial Decision 25200 / 08-11-2011 and then reassembled with the Joint Ministerial Decision 12935 / 24-06-2015, with administrative and financial autonomy

After recovering its administrative and financial autonomy in 2015, NCESD has taken active action to support the Greek State in the development and implementation of sound and effective environmental and sustainable development policies by focusing its actions on the following:

  • Support the Ministry of Environment and Energy to meet the country's obligations to the European Commission and the European Environment Agency.
  • The implementation of projects of environmental nature.
  • Take actions to disseminate environmental policy, to cooperate with all stakeholders and to raise public awareness for the environment and sustainable development.
