Proposals for fifth EC environment programme published

Long-awaited European Commission proposals for the EC's fifth Environment Action Programme have finally been published.1 They are closely in line with a draft reviewed in detail by ENDS in January (ENDS Report 204, pp 20-3 ). But the Commission appears to have lowered its sights for "greening" fiscal policies, and has also bowed to national sensitivities by deleting long-term emission targets for carbon dioxide. The Programme will guide the EC's environmental policy until 2000, although it will be reviewed in 1995.
