- SaveOnEnergy.com/uk analysed the European Environment Agency’s list of nationally designated areas to discover the total number of designated and respective protected areas in each European country, as of 2020.
- They then found the total area of each country to calculate the percentage of protected space per country.
- SaveOnEnergy only considered the protected terrestrial areas of each country for this research – ‘marine’, ‘marine and terrestrial’ and ‘heritage’ sites were not included. The sites that spill over into other countries were also removed.
A ‘nationally designated protected area’ is an area protected by national legislation.
Terrestrial protected areas are totally or partially protected areas that are designated by national authorities as scientific reserves with limited public access, national parks, natural monuments, nature reserves or wildlife sanctuaries, protected landscapes, and areas managed mainly for sustainable use.
Estonia, Finland, Ireland and Turkey were removed from the data as EEA does not have permission to distribute some or all sites by the countries.
Digital Services & Markets: Towards an open and competitive digital space for SMEs
The Digital Services Act package will lay the legal foundation of Europe’s internet economy of the future. What will that mean for SMEs? Join the debate on 22 January via the webinar by registering below or simply watch the live-stream via YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter!
On 15 December 2020, the European Commission published two pieces of legislation that will update the rules for digital companies in Europe: a Digital Services and a Digital Markets Act, collectively known as the Digital Services Act package. In a nutshell, the Digital Services Act (DSA) focuses on illegal content. On the other hand, the Digital Markets Act (DMA) promises to tackle the dominance of large gatekeeper platforms like Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft (GAFAM).
At DIGITAL SME, we believe that Europe needs an open, fair, and competitive digital ecosystem that enables innovation. Continuous dialogue and information flow between the stakeholders can help to create a better system for all. Therefore, DIGITAL SME is organising an online exchange with the European Commission about the Digital Services Act package.
Join us for a debate between policymakers and representatives from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to discuss the proposed solutions for a fair and competitive digital ecosystem. This will ultimately allow SMEs and a wider audience to gain first-hand insights about the proposals of the Digital Services Act package, which may substantially shape digital markets in the years to come.
