Taxonomy: Greens/EFA warn against greenwashing

The European Commission formally adopted the first delegated act on the list of criteria for sustainable investment, "Taxonomy". Greens/EFA call on the Commission not to let investments in gas and nuclear power pass as sustainable. Greenwashing and the Green Deal do not go together.

We are still far from reducing our global emissions by 45% by 2030. The Greens/EFA Group also criticises the last-minute change submitted by China and India to further wea…
