Cities and regions call for collective responsibility over the trajectory towards 2050 climate neutrality

Friday, July 3, 2020 - 12:07am

The European Climate Law, as the legal pillar of the Green Deal, needs

Key Points: 
  • 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.
