Environmental information should be addressed as a priority topic in the context of the modern information society;
Quality assured environmental information is key when aiming to support sustainable environmental policies;
There is a need for streamlined information systems when aiming to support environmental policy making and enabling smooth information flows for citizens;
Regional & local authorities should be seen as key players and custodians of environmental information.
