The Council today adopted a decision which streamlines EU legislation in the field of environmental reporting. By amending or repealing legislation that is no longer applicable or relevant, the decision brings legal clarity, enhances transparency and reduces the administrative burden in the Member States.
"Today's decision is about cutting red tape and making things simpler. I am very pleased that ministers have approved this revision of legislation, which will make environmental reporting obligations clearer and more efficient."
Neno Dimov, Bulgarian Minister for Environment and Water
