The European Union (EU) is considered by some to have the most extensive environmental laws of any international organisation. Its environmental policy is significantly intertwined with other international and national environmental policies. The environmental legislation of the European Union also has significant effects on those of its member states.

Environmental policy is any action deliberately taken to manage human activities with a view to preventing, reducing, or mitigating harmful effects on nature and natural resources, and ensuring that man-made changes to the environment do not have harmful effects on humans. Portuguese environmental policy incorporates a comprehensive planning and programming framework that encompasses the requirements of the European Union.

Potential environmental benefits The European Commission has . the possibilities offered by Community law to integrate environmental considerations into public procurement procedures.

The Court of Justice further clarified those possibilities ( 4 ). 8 The public procurement directives ( 5 ) adopted on 31 March 2004 consolidate and complement the legal context.

At a European level, a commitment to enabling community participation in decision-making, planning and action for sustainable development and health has been further strengthened through a number of parallel developments. These include the Sundsvall Statement on Supportive Environments for Health (10), the Environmental Health Action Plan for Europe (12) and the Environment for Europe process (ww. nece.

Global and European Environmental Policy - Milestones and Concepts Anton Shkaruba, Vladislav Donchenko, Ruben Zondervan. The combination of a mathematical model to assess human impacts, tipping points and thresholds, was innovative for that time - and in hindsight quite accurate: comparison of model outputs with ob-served data for 1970–2000 show a close match for the standard run scenario of the report (though neither for the comprehensive technolo-gy scenario nor the stabilized world scenario) (Turner, 2008). The Limits to Growth Report no doubt had a great impact not only on the academic community and policy-makers, but also on the general public.

Although much environmental legislation is drafted in response to catastrophes, preventing environmental harm is cheaper, easier, and less environmentally dangerous than reacting to environmental harm that already has taken place. The prevention principle is the fundamental notion behind laws regulating the generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste and laws regulating the use of pesticides.
