«Paper VS Digital Environmental Registry »
The article demonstrates whether almost 7 months after its implementation the Digital Environmental Registry(DER) –an operational permitting tool developed for the Greek Ministry of Environment, Energy & Climate Change- has resolved the bureaucracy problem. Since DER optimizes the environmental permitting processes by transforming the current licensing status in a fully digital process and workflow-based platform it might be the answer to many problems. DER enables the electronic submission of environmental impact assessments via web interface, as well as the monitoring of the process in order to issue, amend or renew the decisions on environmental conditions in implementation of Greece’s Law 4014/2011.
