This paper is a report of Case C-673/13 Commission v. Greenpeace and PAN Europe. In its Judgment of 23 November 2016, the CJEU rules that the concept of ‘emissions into the environment’ is not limited to emissions from industrial installations. Rather it includes the release into the environment of substances such as pesticides and biocides. This landmark decision will most likely influence future access to information practice – not limited to the context of pesticides.
