Henrike Hahn MEP, Greens/EFA Group shadow rapporteur on the EU budget for 2022, comments:
"The last-minute breakthrough in the negotiations enables investments in the Green Deal and substantial financial injections into climate, environment, biodiversity, and the transition to a climate-neutral economy. This green EU budget increases the pace for a shift towards sustainable industry, research, and transport infrastructure."
Damian Boeselager Volt MEP, and Greens/EFA Group Rapporteur for the EU Administrative Budget for 2022, comments:
"The agreement clears the way for investments in climate, research and digitalisation and the path to economic recovery. Adequate control of the EU Recovery Plan is a key building block for sustainable investment in green modernisation and strengthens cohesion and citizens' trust in the EU.
