Hearing of the Commisioner-designate for Environment

Resource efficiency, biodiversity and an effective implementation and enforcement of existing environmental legislation are the main issues for Janez Potočnik, Commissioner-designate for Environment, he told MEPs during his hearing. He said that a holistic approach is particularly necessary for the environment since many issues overlap with other responsibilities and interests. Members of the committee on the environment, public health and food safety questioned Mr Potočnik on issues such as the EU water policy, the implementation of REACH, nanotechnologies, the soil-directive, simplification of environmental legislation, targets for resource-efficiency and Natura 2000.
