We are the European Union’s leading environmental law organisation. We work with policymakers to create good laws and to strengthen weak ones. We make sure laws are properly implemented at EU and member state level. When governments and institutions fall short of their legal obligations our lawyers take action to protect the EU’s citizens and its environment.
