Abstract
The environmental policy is a relatively new field in the European Union, even at
the level of the current year, 2019. Although initially it was based on the creation of
general measures programs, within which certain specific measures we re adopted,
currently, the permanent existing g lobal climate changes can no longer be ignored by
national, European or global organizations and institutions. As such, in time, especially in
the last decade, the European Union has been forced, by virtue of the principles gove rning
the relationship between the EU law and that of the Member States, to find solu tions to the
serious problems caused especially by pollution, but also by a series of other climatic
causes. Thus, the environmental p olicy of the European Union is based on a number of
principles, includ ing that of precaution, prevention, diminish of pollution from its source,
as well as that of th e polluter's liability. In this regard, the present paper aims to
summarize the measures taken so far at the level of the European Union, a s well as to
identify additional protective measures that will also lead to the fulfillment of the European
Union Sustainable Development Strategy.

1. Introduction
The environmental policy is a relatively new field in the European Union,
even at the level of the current year, 2019. Although initially it was based on the
creation of general measures programs, within which certain specific measures
were adopted, currently, the permanent existing global climate changes can no
longer be ignored by national, European or global organizations and institutions.
As such, in time, especially in the last decade, the European Union has
been forced, by virtue of the principles governing the relationship between the EU
law and that of the Member States, to find solutions to the serious problems caused
especially by pollution, but also by a series of other climatic causes. Thus, the
environmental policy of the European Union is based on a number of principles,
including that of precaution, prevention, diminish of pollution from its source, as
well as that of the polluter's liability.
In this regard, the present paper aims to summarize the measures taken so
far at the level of the European Union, as well as to identify additional protective
measures that will also lead to the fulfillment of the European Union Sustainable
Development Strategy.
