- The European Climate Law, as the legal pillar of the Green Deal, needs
to fully engage cities and regions in the design of the trajectory towards 2050.
- Members request local and regional climate inventories and objectives and call
for a permanent Multilevel Energy Dialogue Platform and a European
climate neutrality observatory.
- The president of Andalusia and rapporteur Juanma Moreno (ES/EPP) declared:"Europe must continue to lead the global fight against climate change.
- Cities and regions have a crucial role to play in achieving climate neutrality, an objective that should be compatible and even boost regional economic development and job creation.
- We reiterate our call for climate goals to be reached through renewable energy rather than an increased use of nuclear energy."
- Equally, data for monitoring progress under the European Climate Law should be collected at regional, rather than national level.
- Local and regional climate objectives would improve accuracy in progress monitoring and reduce the risks of climate action negatively affecting cohesion in the EU.
- The CoR underlines that climate neutrality should be reached by means of renewable energies rather than by an increased use of nuclear energy.
