Slovenian Parliament passes new environment protection act

The National Assembly endorsed the new environment protection act, which has been labelled by Environment Minister Andrej Vizjak as an “environmental constitution”.

It predominantly deals with management of packaging waste, while also introducing measures to prevent or reduce the generation of all kinds of waste. Most importantly, the bill transposes EU rules and new directives, especially on the expanded producer responsibility for packaging.
