The EU’s Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) regulates pollution from (agro)industrial installations and is currently being revised by the European Commission. The IED has huge potential to become one of the legislative flagships translating the new EU objectives under the European Green Deal into tangible legal obligations: Its revision is a unique opportunity to bring together the new climate neutrality, zero pollution, non-toxic environment, biodiversity and circular economy goals and provide Member States’ authorities and industries with clear rules at hand, while improving public health. Now is the time to strengthen the IED by addressing its flaws and realizing its full potential.
