Who are the EU politicians and professionals who have made the greatest impact on European environmental policy in the last two years?
This project with ENDS Europe sought to shine a light on the people who work behind the scenes in Brussels and across Europe to bring about positive change.
We tried to cover a variety of categories and sectors, from the EU institutions to national policy makers, regulatory agencies, business representatives, scientists and campaigners. We strove throughout to cover a balanced range of roles and to ensure fair representation in terms of nationality and gender.
The selection was far from easy and many more people could have featured in this very first Impact List. We finally whittled down the list to 30 people drawn from seven broad professional categories, plus 5 recognised for their lifetime achievements.
