Green NGOs warn that Member States set to undermine pollution prevention rules

Published Categorised as News

Environmental NGOs warn that the EU Council Presidency proposal for a general approach on the revision of the Industrial Emissions Directive ignores the urgency of aligning an industry with climate neutrality, zero pollution and circular economy goals. Instead of improving ambitious pollution prevention at source, EU government representatives (in particular from Germany, France and Italy) are set to insist on business as usual for Europe’s top polluters while weakening protection for people and the environment.
