Greenhouse gas emissions: extracts from the debate and illustrative pictures
Event date: 16/04/2018
During the EP plenary session (16- 19 April 2018) in Strasbourg, MEPs debate on new rules to ensure the EU meets its overall collective pledge, under the Paris Agreement on climate change. By 2030, CO2 emitted by transport, farming, buildings and waste must be cut by 30% in the EU, and any deforestation in the EU will have to be balanced out by planting new trees, according to a set of draft rules to be approved by Parliament. Statements by Norbert LINS (EPP, DE), Rapporteur, Gerben-Jan GERBRANDY (ALDE, NL), Rapporteur, and Miguel ARIAS CAÑETE, Member of the EC in charge of Climate Action and Energy.
