Eighth Union Environment Action Programme

01-07-2021

The Environment Action Programme (EAP) provides a framework for the EU's overall environmental policy development and guide policy-making through identifying priorities and setting out a long-term vision and goals. In October 2020, the Commission adopted a proposal for a decision on a general EU Environment Action Programme to 2030, to continue from the seventh EAP, which expired at the end of 2020. The European Parliament is expected to vote on the proposal during the July 2021 session, fixing its position for trilogue talks.
