Europe and Environment

A clean, healthy and diverse environment is the prerequisite for prosperity and well-being for everyone in Europe. Therefore, approximately 80 per cent of the environmental policies applicable in Germany are made by the EU Commission, the EU Parliament and the Council. Effective environmental protection also requires reasonable coordination of environmental with economic, transport and agricultural policies.

"I firmly believe that environmental action leads to greater social justice and that the two are inextricably linked."

Svenja Schulze Federal Environment Minister <b><i>&quot;I firmly believe that environmental action leads to greater social justice and that the two are inextricably linked.&quot;</i></b>
