The analysis of the intervieweesÂ’ speeches (two deputy chief commissioners and three managers) show the importance of creativity in the adaptation process of Romanian institutions to the European regulations as well as acquisition of some procedures which led to obtaining good results in managing environmental issues by other member states in the European Union.
