This Article will illustrate that indeed, European environmental law is not just another sectoral policy area of the European Union (“EU”). Over the years it has proven to have a major impact on various general doctrines of European law. In that sense, European environmental law had (and still has) an important spill-over impact upon general European Community (“EC”) law. It is the modest ambit of this Article to illustrate some of the environmental spill-overs into general European law, specifically examining the role of the European Court of Justice (“ECJ”) and its case law.
