Press Release: Report on implementation of 6EAP

The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) has today released a report prepared by IEEP on the implementation of the EU’s 6th Environmental Action Programme (6EAP). Agreed in 2002, the 6EAP sets out priority objectives to be attained by the EU in the field of environmental policy before 2012. It reflects a joint commitment of the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission and thus provides an important benchmark against which to evaluate the evolution of policy.
