01-01-2001

One of the most important challenges of this enlargement is ensuring that the environmental p One rotection in the new members will be at least as high as in the old members. This challenge is high because of the negligence of the environmental problems in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in the past and the large gap in the level of environmental protection between CEE and the Union. Some of the most important causes of environmental pollution are the production and use of energy.
