Developing European Environmental Policy

The European Commission develops and implements EU policies by

  • proposing laws to the European Parliament and Council of the European Union
  • helping EU countries implement EU legislation
  • managing the EU's budget and allocating funding
  • ensuring that EU law is complied with together with the Court of Justice
  • representing the EU outside Europe together with the EU's diplomatic service, the European External Action Service

EU policies are designed to bring benefits to citizens, businesses and other stakeholders in the EU. Commission initiatives for new policies have to be agreed on internally according to a set procedure.

Better regulation tools ensure that each new policy is based on evidence and best available practice.
