The European Union is an economic and political group of 27 countries (as of April 2020) that covers much of Europe. It began as a purely economic community following World War II as the European Economic Community and changed its name to the European Union in 1993 after the addition of many more countries. The EU has some of the highest environmental standards in the world and actively promotes a sustainable environmental framework. The EU is also known for its transparency, by making its laws and court cases available for free online.
