The EEB does not take a position for or against the main objective of the Directive, being to create a single market for service providers throughout the European Union. But it notes with concern the considerable resistance of civil society organisations that fear that the proposal can have a negative impact on established social rights and services.

Furthermore, the EEB notes that the Commission has done a very poor job in considering the possible consequences of this Directive for the environment. Such a consideration is required as the first step to implement Article 6 of the EC Treaty, which insists that all Community policies integrate environmental protection requirements, in particular with a view to promoting sustainable development.
