This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the formulation and implementation of European Union (EU) environmental policies. The result reveals a steady broadening of the issues covered by EU environmental policy along with a continuous adjustment of the policy instruments used and the underlying regulatory approaches. The findings also indicate that implementation patterns, which include the regulatory competition between the member states and the problems of national adaptation to European requirements in the implementation phase, are linked to the multi-level character of the EU. The chapter also argues that environmental policy is closely linked to the regulation of the Internal Market and the integration process.
