The fight against climate change is at the core of the committee’s work. It remains high on the agenda in this legislature as work is progressing on crucial proposals including the ETS review, the Effort-Sharing of greenhouse gas emission reductions between the EU Member States and land-use, land-use change and forestry. The circular economy will be another area of focus in the second half of this parliamentary term, in view of the ongoing revision of the waste legislation.
ENVI is also committed to proposing European solutions to public health and food safety issues impacting European citizens.
