The world is rapidly changing due to climate change and the systematic depletion of natural resources. This paper provides a glimpse over the horizon of issues likely to be of interest to European criminology in the not so distant future. Our concern is to identify a set of issues and trends that have significant theoretical, methodological and policy implications for those with an interest in transnational environmental crime. The concerns range from the social consequences of climate change through to the use of the subterranean spaces of the planet as a toxic repository. This paper presents a brief summary of several horizon issues and explores the implications of these for criminological research and intervention. The paper provides an introduction and overview of environmental horizon scanning as informed by eco-global criminological considerations.
