Brussels Briefing on Environment – All you need to know for October 2015

October 15, 2015 - Environment

COP21 is fast approaching and the last formal meeting ahead of it, to be held in Bonn, Germany, on 19 – 23 October, will be the occasion for EU policy-makers to have their say on the controversial latest draft text. Meanwhile, the head-spinning Volkswagen emission cheating scandal is at the heart of Brussels environment discussions, as the European Parliament accuses the Commission of leaving it behind in deciding the details of new, real world emissions tests. Finally, the Commission says Europe is not on track to halting biodiversity loss by 2020, in a mid-term review of the EU’s biodiversity strategy. Other issues to look out for this autumn include nanomaterials, endocrine disruptors and glyphosate.
