EurEau answer to the public consultation on the Zero Pollution Action Plan

Pollution of air, water and soil is also one of the five main drivers of biodiversity loss and contributes largely to the current 6th species extinction. It comes at a high price for society and ecosystems, including healthrelated costs (healthcare, lost workdays, lost productivity), reduced yields (e.g. in agriculture, fisheries and tourism), remediation costs (e.g. water treatment, soil decontamination, marine depollution) and loss of ecosystem services (e.g. pollination). Pollution is also strongly interrelated with other environmental, social and economic risks for businesses and citizens.

EurEau feed-back on RED IIA (fin).pdf

EurEau feedback on the Inception Impact Assessment for the review of the EU renewable energy rules (Directive 2018/2001/EU, RED)

We support the EU’s Green Deal, including its climate ambitions and Strategies.

We call for full coherence between the RED, other energy legislation (EED), and sectoral legislation (Drinking Water Directive, Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive). We call for full coherence between the RED, other energy legislation (EED), and sectoral legislation (DW Directive, Urban WW Treatment Directive).

Meeting society’s demand for safe water services may involve energy-intensive processes making energy one of the sector’s highest operational cost factors. Optimising energy use has therefore been a top priority for many years. The sector will step up efforts further with the ambition to reduce its GHG emissions in line with EU objectives.

Meeting society’s demand for safe water services may involve energy-intensive processes making energy one of the sector’s highest operational cost factors. Optimising its use has therefore been a top priority for many years. Still, the energy efficiency potential is far from exhausted. The sector accepts the need to step up efforts further with the ambition to reduce its GHG emissions in line with EU objectives. However, if an energy-intensive treatment step is technically necessary (safety, regulatory compliance), it must prevail despite higher energy use.

EurEau reaction to the Circular Economy Action Plan

The new Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) published on 11 March 2020 offered a unique opportunity to unleash the water sector’s potential. While the European Commission presented a lot of good intentions and the will to “scale up the circular economy from front-runners to the mainstream economic players”, a number of question marks remain and the potential of the water sector is not sufficiently exploited. In this context, we wish to make the following comments.
