Members express that EU SDG goals are not impressive enough

MEP’s have expressed that the agreement on EU sustainable development goals are not challenging enough to facilitate the environmental change that is necessary amongst the EU member states. The MEP’s have had a longstanding issue with the agreed goals that the Commission has applied, believing that they are inconsistent and will not work in the long run. The MEP’s are requesting that the Commission not only work to improve the execution of the sustainable development goals, but also to develop the goals in that they will have a larger focus on clean water and biodiversity. The MEP’s also request that the European Investment Bank utilise its power by dedicating 40% of its loans to necessary climate projects by the year of 2030. Some lawmakers of S&D claim that the structure that the EU’s industrial agriculture sector is built on simply does not allow the EU to reach its environmental goals as a whole. An S&D group drafted a resolution regarding EU sustainable actions and obtained 446 votes to 57.
