Environment ministers adopted a resolution on Thursday urging further progress on an EU strategy on the health-related aspects of environmental issues. The resolution responds to the European commission's mid-term review of the strategy, which concluded earlier this year that meeting its goals by the 2010 deadline would be difficult (EED 13/06/07). The text of the resolution is little changed from a draft circulated last month (EED 14/11/07). The importance of precaution has been emphasised. Guidelines on indoor environments should be "consolidated" with "special attention" to construction products, chemicals and eco-design. See environment and health resolution.
