Euromines position on the current evaluation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD)

Euromines welcomes and supports the European Union commitment to achieve good qualitative and quantitative status of all water bodies. We support society’s development according the UN sustainable development goals.

The ongoing evaluation process (fitness check) of the European Water Framework Directive (WFD 2000/60/EC) and its daughter directives is a good instrument to revise its pro’s and contra’s in current society. This is an opportunity to consider and evaluate experiences made during the implementation of the directive over almost two decades. With this positioning paper we would like to express our views and concerns of the WFD for EU mining industry.
