Parliament called on EU member states to enforce EU environmental law more rigorously in Thursday's vote endorsing a deal with the Council of Ministers on the seventh EU environmental action programme, to run until 2020. This programme will structure the EU's entire environmental policy, from water management to climate change.

The seventh action programme, proposed in November 2012, lists nine priority aims to be achieved by 2020, including protection of the environment and the strengthening of ecological resilience, support for sustainable and efficient growth, and protection against environmental threats to health.

To these ends, MEPs propose inter alia enforcing EU environmental law more rigorously, providing security for investments that support environmental policy and efforts to combat climate change, and taking more account of environmental concerns in other policies.

Next steps

The new environmental action programme is to be formally approved by the Council in mid-November and published in the EU Official Journal by the end of this year.
