The EEB, ClientEarth and other consumer, health and environmental protection groups urge justice for EU pollution victims in a joint letter on the upcoming Industrial Emissions Directive European Parliament plenary vote. When people’s health suffers as a result of illegal industrial activities or inaction from public authorities, victims should be empowered to go to court and stand a genuine chance of obtaining compensation from those who have violated the law and caused them harm. However, even in cases of illegal pollution,  there are no effective and harmonised rules to ask for remedy before the courts. We call upon the Members of the European Parliament to adopt a standardised and meaningful protection for victims of unlawful pollution.
