According to 1991 UNESCO research, Evritania is considered one of top areas of the world in environmental cleanliness and the cleanest area in Europe. It represents the "basis" for research measurement as it is considered to have a zero pollution rate.

The Prefecture has a Mediterranean climate, mainland mountainous with frequent rain, mild winters and cool summers. It is a clearly mountainous area, most of which is at an altitude of over 1000 m., which offers great aquatic richness and vast forest cover.

Fir trees dominate the highest mountain peaks. Lower down, there are oak forests, while below 1000 m. Mediterranean vegetation such as arbutus, olive trees etc. predominates. Mountain valleys, shaped by the rivers permit the creation of small, cultivatable areas. The fauna of the area is also rich.

Different kinds of birds of prey and the Episcopy lake wild trout complete the area's biodiversity.
