Go ahead for the resolution in Strasbourg

STRASBOURG – The European Parliament has declared the climatic and environmental emergency in Europe and in the world, giving the green light to a non-legislative resolution.

The text passed with 429 votes in favor, 225 against and 19 abstentions.

In view of COP25, the United Nations Conference on climate change to be held from 2 to 13 December in Madrid, Parliament today approved this resolution, asking the Commission to ensure that all relevant legislative and budgetary proposals are fully in line with the aim of limiting global warming below 1.5 degrees.
