No green light from Greens/EFA - CAP reform is set to again fail farmers, climate & environment

The majority of MEPs voted in favour of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for 2023-2027. Rather than using this next CAP period, and one third of the EU budget, to help solve the climate and environment emergency, or the loss of thousands of farmers per day, the final agreement repackages the status quo and falls short of the promises of the Green Deal.

Tilly Metz Caroline Roose Thomas Waitz
Opinion by Tilly Metz & Caroline Roose & Thomas Waitz
Every day, thousands of animals are transported in horrific conditions across the European Union and beyond for breeding, fattening or slaughter. The Greens/EFA are fighting for an end to these cruel practices. Negotiations on the Committee’s report are now coming to an end.

New EU deforestation law could fail to protect our precious ecosystems

Anna Cavazzini Rosa D’Amato Anna Deparnay-Grunenberg Heidi Hautala Tilly Metz Ville Niinistö Grace O'Sullivan Marie Toussaint
Opinion by Anna Cavazzini & Rosa D’Amato & Anna Deparnay-Grunenberg & Heidi Hautala & Tilly Metz & Ville Niinistö & Grace O'Sullivan & Marie Toussaint
The Commission just adopted a proposal to stop deforestation. But this new deforestation law is all bark and no bite. It continues to threaten biodiversity and ecosystems worldwide, and EU products continue to be complicit in environmental destruction.
