Watch the video of our member and Rapporteur Arnaud Schwartz and learn more about the Opinion dedicated to the Implementation of EU environmental legislation in the areas of air quality, water and waste.

Stay tuned and follow the debate during the EESC Plenary ! 

 

Poor implementation of environmental law and policies has many negative effects, such as:

  • environmental, economic and social costs,
  • unequal playing field for economic operators,
  • the loss of credibility of both national authorities and the EU.

The purpose of this opinion will be to provide a civil society's perspective both on implementation deficiencies on the ground as well as on gaps in legislation that may lead to implementation issues.
