The article considers the move of the European Commission (EC) to strengthen environmental regulatory powers by obliging member states to treat offences against the environment as criminal acts. Through a proposed directive, the move hopes to abolish the safe havens for environmental crime. EC wants to ensure that transgressors are punished and see minimum sanctions for environmental crimes set across member states. Offences include the illegal emission of hazardous substances and illegal shipment of waste.
