The European Parliament today voted its position on EU energy goals for 2030, backing out of the level of action needed to combat climate change.

MEPs voted on three files of the ‘Clean Energy Package’ of climate legislation for the next crucial decade for climate action. The positions adopted today will now be taken forward into negotiations with EU governments.

Our world is already experiencing man-made climate change, including here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the climate crisis and increasing social inequality within and between countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe believes the rich industrialised countries most responsible for the climate crisis, including Europe, must act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.

 

Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to build and strengthen a movement for climate justice and to promote genuine solutions to the climate crisis.
