Our department plays an important supporting role in the definition, evaluation and implementation of environmental policies, through research and innovation, services to public actors and businesses and awareness-raising and training activities.
This role is formalised through contractual agreements with several ministries, for the following policies:
- Clean production in industry – European “IPPC” Directive – “Integrated Pollution Prevention & Control”, intelligent use of raw materials, energy efficiency
- Chemical products – REACH & CLP regulations, for which we provide a national service assisting manufacturers, importers, distributors and the users of chemical-based articles and products (www.reach.lu or www.clp.lu)
- Integrated water resources management – European Water Framework Directive - We are also regularly asked to evaluate environmental policies on national level (advice for ministries and public administrations concerning energy policies or environmental permits) and we contribute to their implementation.
