Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This report was produced following the June 2001 Gothenburg European Council's request for a document assessing how environmental technology can promote growth and employment. The report discusses concepts and definitions, looks at the European eco-industry and the global environmental technology market, gives an overview of the environmental technologies of tomorrow, and suggests ways of realising the full potential of environmental technologies. A section on research policy summarises the objectives and present actions as well as future EU research actions in the period 2002-2006.

The Commission now intends to develop an action plan to address barriers to the diffusion of environmental technologies and promote their development and use. The plan will also assess promising technologies which could be used to address key environmental problems.
