European aid control policy and environmental protection - an evaluation of the new Community guidelines

This study is an investigation of the European Commission’s new "Framework for Environmental Aid" in terms of a consistency in competition protection and environmental protection goals. It includes content related and in parts empirical verifications of the individual regulatory mechanisms of the framework regarding competition and environmental consequences for the EU Member States and the Community as well as for their practicality. Selected results: The competition paradigm used in the Commission’s State aid control falls short in addressing environmental politics by ignoring allocative distortions of competition caused by external effects. Several obstacles for progressive environmental politics within the Community followed, without being accompanied by an improvement in competition-protection. Above all “modern” areas like ecological taxation, cooperative and process-integrated environmental protection are concerned.
