"Could Try Harder" - Green 10 mid-term review of the European Commission
Posted on 27 April 2007
Environmental groups issued a critical verdict on the Commission’s record in protecting and improving Europe’s environment during the first half of its term in office, and laid out a series of recommendations for its remaining 2½ years.
As they did with the previous Commission, the Green 10 coalition of environmental organisations has produced a mid-term assessment of the Barroso Commission’s record in honouring its obligations to protect and improve the environment, as specified in the Treaty. This review presents a critique of the past two-and-a-half years, plus a ‘to-do’ list for the rest of its term.
