Laying the groundwork for better implementation of EU environment law

With the aim of  delivering  better environmental outcomes for people and businesses, the Commission has recently issued a communication on better implementation of EU environment law. It underlines the positive benefits of environment law, showing how preventing damage to the environment can cost far less than long-term remediation
Speaking of environment law , Commissioner Janez Potočnik has said: "EU law is not an invention from Brussels; it is democratically adopted by all Member States and the Parliament for the benefit of citizens. Our environment is protected by some 200 pieces of well established law, but all too often they are not properly applied. This doesn't just harm the environment – it also damages human health, leads to uncertainty for industry, and undermines the Single Market. In a time of crisis, these are costs we cannot afford."
Notably, the communication will list measures to help Member States achieve a fully systematic approach to knowledge collection and dissemination, including ways to encourage more responsiveness on environmental issues.
