Memorandum of Understanding with the Centre for Climate Crime Analysts
At the beginning of May 2018, Europol and the Centre for Climate Crime Analysis (CCCA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to reinforce their efforts to address environmental crime, especially air pollution and deforestation, including all crimes covered by the European Union Timber Regulation. Under the MoU, Europol and the CCCA pledge to exchange knowledge and cooperate in the implementation of projects of common interest.
The CCCA is a non-profit organisation made up of prosecutors and law enforcement professionals. The organisation aims to trigger and support the investigation and prosecution of climate crime by providing the relevant authorities with high-quality information and analysis. It has been operative since 2017.
