The Health and Environment Alliance welcomes the compromises reached throughout the discussions. The agreed legislative changes have the potential to make CLP a more protective and efficient piece of legislation.
On 17 April 2018, HEAL sent a letter to the Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz ahead of Austria’s upcoming presidency of the Council of the European Union from July 2018 on. We encouraged this member state to show leadership to advance on a safe environment that benefits people’s health and an adequate allocation of resources to climate and environment measures.
On 2 May 2018, we received the response from the Director General for Coordination, responsible for EU matters and the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
