Parliament Support for Juncker on Environment Eroding Over Attack on Green Legislation

Five out of seven political groups, representing over 60 per cent of MEPs in the European Parliament, have shown they are against the European Commission’s proposal to withdraw environmental legislation from its 2015 Work Programme through group resolutions prepared earlier this week.

The Commission has come under fire for its intention to withdraw the waste package and potentially delay a proposal to clean up Europe’s air. The Social Democrats (S&D), Liberals (ALDE), Greens (Greens-EFA), Eurosceptics (EFDD) and Left (GUE-NGL) parties were all critical of the Commission’s intentions. Several groups urged the Commission to make sustainability a cornerstone of its political agenda and the S&D even called for trust between the Commission and Parliament to be restored, after a lack of transparency in the Commission’s work programme preparations.

In 2014, EU ministers had already expressed their dissatisfaction at the Commission’s plan in the areas of waste and air quality and stated they wanted negotiations on both files to continue.
