Actual policy developments
EU Taxonomy Regulation
The Taxonomy Regulation was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 22 June 2020 and entered into force on 12 July 2020.
The Taxonomy Regulation establishes environmental objectives, amongst them:
Pollution prevention and control.
The European Commission has adopted a proposal for a new EU Directive to crack down on environmental crime by strengthening the protection of the environment through criminal law. The proposal intends to make protection of the environment more effective by obliging States to take criminal law measures.
Waste Shipment Regulation
The new Waste Shipment Regulation has three goals: ensuring that the EU does not export its waste challenges to third countries; making it easier to transport waste for recycling and reuse in the EU; and better tackling illegal waste shipments. This will ensure that the EU does not export its pollution abroad.
