Abstract

The paper “Essentialities concerning the Environmental Policy in the European Union, 2008-2017 period” presents aspects related to the total environmental expenses for each country in the European Union, the total CO2 emissions for the fossil fuel consumption and industrial processes, the consumption of chemical substances in the European Union depending on the hazard. In many countries, a strong development of the thermal energy sector from renewable resources was a decisive key in achieving and exceeding these intermediate objectives of the member countries. This is the case, for example, in Bulgaria, Finland and Sweden, where the development was determined mainly by the types of low cost biomass. In Estonia, Italy and Portugal, the electricity sector contributed the most to exceeding the general objectives provided for these countries in their national; action plans in the field of energy from renewable sources.
