Recent developments within the framework of the European Green Deal have aimed at criminalization and an overhaul of regulatory frameworks to address environmental crime and its effects on the financial interests of the EU. The study suggests that despite commendable efforts, the transnational nature of environmental crime and its convergence with organized crime, money laundering and corruption, have not been adequately integrated into current reforms. A proper categorization of environmental crime as a ‘serious crime’ is needed as an essential basis for policy reforms.
