Environmental organisations call for a rigorous implementation of the LCP BREF by national governments and are ready to fight any attempts to undermine the new rules by exploiting especially-designed loopholes.

The EEB will work towards achieving its policy mandate for a full European coal phase out by 2030 at the latest. It is now high time for national government to show leadership and gain the
combined benefits of tackling climate change and air pollution by implementing the LCP BREF standards ambitiously at the national level.
