Dear friends, dear interested,
Today, the European Parliament will adopt an ambitious Air Quality Implementation Report! You can find the details of this success here: https://sven-giegold.de/en/eu-environment-committee-votes-for-cleaner-air/
We send a strong signal to the Commission and Member States for clean air and better enforcement of EU laws! A progressive majority of Social Democrats, Liberals, Greens and the Left prevailed over the conservatives. We call for stricter limits for fine particles, nitrogen dioxide, microplastics, and other pollutants. National governments shall finally be held accountable for poor air quality. A great result for clean air in Europe that was only possible due to the support by civil society and citizens across Europe. Thank you all very much for your help.
Let’s celebrate together! I would like to invite you to join me and many others today, 7pm, for a short “clean air party”! We will watch the announcement of the final results live together and raise a glass to breathable air across Europe. We will also be joined by the rapporteur Javi Lopez (S&D, Spain).
Feel free to share this invitation with your friends and colleagues.
Thank you very much once more and see you soon!
Green shadow rapporteur for clean air
