The Environment Web-portal (EnviWeb) is the unique complex environment web-portal in the Czech Internet (it is located on the address http://www.enviweb.cz). It was launched in October 2001 and it became the most visited portal in this branch. The portal is divided into these sections: Water, Air, Waste, Chemicals, Disasters, Noise, Nature, Soil, Forest, Geology, EIA, EMS and Misc. EnviWeb is primarily intended for experts, the professional public, firms, government and for citizens. It contains most of the useful directory of companies in the Czech Republic, directories of inspections, ministries, regional offices, department offices, branch associations, hygienic offices, organizations which provide business support, etc. EnviWeb offers access to complex environmental legislation in the Czech Republic. Important parts of this portal are the archive of articles, which is divided into popular, technical and business articles and archive of events. In my report I will present the functional background of this portal, the technology used, the knowledge and experience from its management together with the experience of free access to environmental information using EnviWeb.
