Saint-Gobain Glass Deutschland Gmbh v European Commission

European Union – Environment. The General Court of the European Union had erred in law by not interpreting the first sub-paragraph of art 4(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 strictly, as required by the second sentence of art 6(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1367/2006. Accordingly, the Court of Justice of the European Union allowed the appellant company's appeal against the General Court's judgment in proceedings between the appellant and the European Commission regarding the Commission's refusal of full access to information relating to certain of the appellant's installations situated on German territory and concerned by the Union legislature on the scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowance trading.
