Investment in gas and nuclear power contradicts Green Deal
In the newly proposed delegated act of the catalogue of criteria for sustainable investments ("taxonomy") the Commission classifies some investments in gas and nuclear power as sustainable. The Greens/EFA reject any greenwashing of gas and nuclear power and call on MEPs to vote against the proposal.
Stop the greenwashing of nuclear power and gas!
While the negotiations of the EU’s “Fit-for-55” climate package are in progress, a fatal decision is looming. The climate neutrality and sustainability of Europe's energy supply is at stake. Specifically: New nuclear and gas power plants are to be classified as “sustainable investments”. This would mean that gas and nuclear energy would be painted green and cash floodgates would be opened for these energy sources. It would send the EU’s climate and energy policy on a completely wrong path!
