Greens/EFA call for adoption of the platform workers directive

MEPs will debate the need to overcome the Council deadlock on the platform workers directive. It is estimated that at least 4 million people working through digital labour platforms are misclassified as self-employed instead of employees, allowing platforms to evade labour, tax and social security legislation that apply to employees.

By greening our economies, we can provide high-quality green jobs to fight unemployment and at the same time combat climate change and environmental degradation. This brochure looks at Europe’s opportunities for creating green jobs and the efforts of the Greens/EFA in the European Parliament to boost green employment.

Green design: the way forward for a true circular economy

How will the EU ensure tech and fashion companies make long lasting, robust and quality products that don’t harm people and planet? A new law (called Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation) will tackle these problems by setting circular design criteria on just about all consumer goods. This will be a gamechanger

EPP and Renew align with far-right extremists against nature restoration

A majority of EPP, Renew and right-wing populists in the European Parliament's Fisheries Committee rejected the European Commission's proposal for a Directive on Nature Restoration. The rejection is part of an ideological right-wing campaign against the Green Deal and key legislation to protect the climate and conserve natural resources.
