The Polish environment ministry has decided to end extra monitoring of the country's dirtiest companies, reflecting significant improvements in industrial environmental performance. Known as the "list of 80" when it was first compiled in 1990, the number of listed companies has already fallen to 37 as stronger industrial pollution controls, such as the EU's IPPC directive, have been introduced. Most firms involved were in the chemical, steel and coal sectors. The environment ministry said it would introduce a detailed report on the listed companies' environmental record later this year.
