EU Emissions portal
MEPs were largely united behind the European Parliament’s position on the Industrial Emissions Portal Regulation in a vote in June 2023 (563 voting in favour, 51 against and 18 abstaining). The position would require the portal to include links to more information for each installation (or group of installations with the same operator at the same site). This would include summaries of its permit, environmental management system and IED green transformation plan. It would also require a list of non-compliant installations. The MEPs endorsed the Commission’s proposal to add new pollutants to the reporting requirements, in particular substances of emerging concern, such as micropollutants or microplastics, as well as the addition of “forever chemicals” – per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances – to the list.
