MEPs should block the EU’s ‘green’ investments list – for now

June 8, 2021

In this letter, 91 environmental and consumer groups appeal to the European Parliament not to accept sustainable finance rules that would allow logging and the burning of trees to be counted as green investments.

In a public letter, groups such as T&E, WWF, Greenpeace, and BEUC call on the 705 MEPs to suspend scrutiny of the EU Commission’s taxonomy of green investments until other crucial pieces of legislation on bioenergy, gas, nuclear energy and agriculture are disclosed later this year.
