IPPC Review Stakeholder Consultation: “Towards a future policy on industrial emissions”

Published: 18 June 2007

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime thanks the Commission for consulting stakeholders on the review of the IPPC Directive and related legislation on industrial emissions and provides the following comments based upon the Commission’s stakeholder consultation questionnaire.

Orgalime believes that prior to considering changes to the existing IPPC directive, its implementation should be completed, which would allow the gaining of sufficient experience and evidence for any reviewing of the directive. In the meantime, we believe that the Commission should foster a harmonised implementation of the directive and foster international commitment and cooperation to allow a level playing field for companies that act globally.
