Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe supports a climate case initiated by 10 families from Europe and outside together with the Saami Youth Association from Sweden. The plaintiffs claim that the EU's 2030 target is not ambitious enough to protect their lives, livelihoods and fundamental rights from the worsening impacts of climate change.
The letter below is written by these families and the Saami youth asking you to put climate change in the heart of Future of Europe debate.
The European Investment Bank (EIB), the world’s largest multilateral lender and major provider of climate finance, is holding a public consultation on its energy lending policy which was last revised/adopted in 2013.
A new report by CAN Europe titled “Time to pick up the pace: Insights into the draft National Energy and Climate Plans” highlights key features of 24 draft National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs), the development of which is required by the Governance Regulation adopted last year and designed to ensure EU member states will collectively achieve the bloc’s climate and energy targets for 2030. The European Commission will issue recommendations in June before the NECPs are finalised by the end of this year.
The report “Defenders, Delayers, Dinosaurs: Ranking of EU political groups and national parties on climate change” assesses the voting behaviour of current MEPs in relation to climate and energy issues.
