ENABLING TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE

Stepping up implementation and enforcement of EU environmental legislation

Updated on: 2021-12-15


Deadline: 2021

Summary: The Environmental Crime Directive is the main horizontal instrument to protect the environment through criminal law. It requires Member States to define environmental crimes including wildlife trafficking and illegal killing or taking specimens of protected wild fauna or flora and to introduce criminal sanctions. On 15 December, the Commission adopted a proposal for a revised Directive to crack down on environmental crime, fulfilling a key commitment of the European Green Deal. The proposal intends to make protection of the environment more effective by obliging Member States to take criminal law measures. It defines new environmental crimes, sets a minimum level for sanctions and strengthens the effectiveness of law enforcement cooperation. It also obliges the Member States to support and assist people who report environmental offences and cooperate with the enforcement.
