In this paper the eight undersigning environmental organisations limit their comments to the environmental dimension of the services Directive only, and do not focus on the wider issues that are under discussion at the moment.

Birdlife International, Climate Action Network Europe, the European Environmental Bureau, the European Federation for Transport and Environment, the Environmental Network of the European Public Health Alliance, Friends of Nature International, Friends of the Earth Europe and Greenpeace, note 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.
