Don’t waste our chance on a good climate law2

We are at a crucial point of the EU Climate law negotiations. In the European Parliament we successfully pushed for a 60% reduction of greenhouse gasses by 2030 but then negotiations with Member States in the trilogue got stuck because of a lack of willingness to increase their ambition.

On Earth Day, 22 April, there will be an international leaders’ summit on climate hosted by US president Joe Biden. Although it is a good sign that some European leaders are now trying to go ahead and strike a deal on the Climate Law before this summit, some politicians are ready to cut corners, and even cut some fundamental aspects such of the law, such as the 2030 emission reduction target, the Greenhouse Gas Budget, and the European Climate Change Council.

Having stonewalled the parliament for months, the Council now wants to rush a deal without making concessions themselves.

They are going to decide the policies that will have an impact in the years to come, and after having slowed them down for months, some governments are rushing to have it done in a few days. A good deal is better than a rushed deal.

This is why we need to increase the pressure now.

Tell your minister not to cut ambition, we need a strong EU Climate Law now!
