The true costs of automobility

Study about the external costs of car use in EU-27

Car use creates benefits for the users. Naturally there are also costs for car mobility: obvious costs but also less obvious ones, such as costs arising from noise and pollution. The study commissioned by the Greens/EFA estimates the magnitude of these hidden costs of car mobility and the ways in which these costs are currently being financed.

Towards the end of oil

A Greens/EFA study

The European Union faces one of its greatest ever challenges: preparing for a post-oil society Oil enabled Europe to become one of the richest economies on the planet. Our continent is the world's second largest consumer of oil, yet its oil production has halved since 1999. Today it only meets 13% of its needs, and soon the European Union will be importing all the oil it consumes. Taking a broader view, since the 1980s the world has been consuming more oil than it has found. This Greens/EFA study aims to provide the reader with a picture of the oil situation, including the consequences of various developments and the vulnerabilities affecting the European Union and its population as a result of diminishing oil reserves and higher oil prices.

Pensions

Green/EFA position paper

Greens/EFA argue for a life-course approach to pension policy. A life-course approach takes into account the whole career along a life-course, it takes into account career interruptions and changes. A life-course approach is flexible enough to adapt to individuals and if it is well-managed it can provide for financial sustainability of public pension systems. It directs the debate from a fixed retirement age to the core issues of adequacy and solidarity.

10 demands in the EU Common Fisheries Policy reform 2012-2013

What the Greens want

Marine resources are a public good, not a private resource. The right to exploit those resources, therefore, should be allocated according to criteria that ensure that fishing contributes as far as possible to the public interest. Greens propose that the allocation of the right to fish should be based upon criteria rather than market forces – specifically, on the environmental and social aspects of the fishing.
