Brussels Briefing on Environment – March 2012

In this latest issue of the Brussels Briefing on Environment, leading energy & environment journalist Sonja van Renssen provides an extensive update on the progress made in the field of Environment under the Danish presidency so far.

Energy Efficiency, Climate and Green Growth were set to dominate the agenda during the Danish presidency but several setbacks had to be faced. In this briefing, attention goes out to strong Polish scepticism and the Commission’s persistence not to suspend its aviation emissions scheme. Finally, Van Renssen pays attention to several challenges that are equally important to the European Union’s Environmental policy as the future victories it may claim in Rio.
