Joint memorandum on the implementation of environmental law in Greece

The Green Tank, along with nine environmental organizations (ARCHELON, Hellenic Society for the Environment and Culture, Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature, Hellenic Ornithological Society, Callisto, Ecological Recycling Society, GREENPEACE, MEDASSET, WWF Hellas), sent a joint memorandum to the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Environment on legislative, policy and other developments regarding the implementation of EU environmental law in Greece.

The memorandum focuses on the period since 2020, when a relevant meeting was held in Greece. It concerns both open infringement cases (or even convictions of Greece) and other cases of apparent non-compliance of Greece with EU legislation.

It aims to develop an informed and constructive dialogue with the services of the European Commission, which, in addition to acting as the guardian of EU law, regularly publishes a review of the implementation of environmental legislation.
