26-07-2005 | News item

The Environmental Balance 2005 describes the Dutch state of the environment and also provides an evaluation of environmental policy measures. The pressure on the Dutch environment is presently higher than European standards allow, due to the fact the Netherlands are densely populated and very open for pollution from abroad. The additional required national measures to comply with the European environmental standards show the dilemma between a level playing field for producers and equal environmental protection levels for all citizens.
