INTEGRATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS INTO OTHER POLICY AREAS: A STOCKTAKING OF THE CARDIFF PROCESS
(European Commission, June 2004) This report evaluates the progress of the Cardiff process launched by the European Council to integrate environmental considerations into other EU policy decisions. The nine sectors that have produced integration strategies since EU leaders met in Cardiff in 1998 are agriculture, transport, energy, industry, internal market, development, fisheries, economics and finance, and foreign affairs. The report, inter alia, highlights the significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, calls on the EU to promote environmental concerns in WTO and other trade negotiations, and suggests a number of recommendations for improving the effectiveness of the Cardiff process. The report will be forwarded to the European Council and contribute to preparations for the 2004 Environmental Policy Review and the ECís 2005 report to the Spring European Council. The report is available at: http://europa.eu.int/comm/environment/integration/integration.htm
