Press release: S&D – Udo Bullmann and Pervenche Berès: we will not accept to go back to austerity policy

Following the publication of the annual report by the European Fiscal Board (EFB) severely criticising the European Commission’s role in the development and implementation of the EU fiscal policy, S&D Group president Udo Bullmann stated:“We regret that the last EFB annual report is strongly criticising the changes the European Commission applied to its fiscal policies from 2015 onwards in order to mobilise investments and lend support to the recovery of the EU economy. These innovations, which make use of the flexibility in the existing fiscal rulebook, were instrumental in fighting the economic and social crisis in Europe and a key request from the S&D Group. We continue to consider that it has been the right choice to end austerity in the EU.”

Press Release: S&Ds call for urgent action to fulfil Paris Agreement commitments

Following the publication of the IPCC climate change report today and ahead of the Environment Council’s meeting tomorrow, S&D Euro MPs call for urgent additional measures to fulfil the Paris Agreement pledges. The report of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that there is only 12 years to be kept to a maximum of 1.5°C and avoid a catastrophic environmental breakdown. The Paris Agreement signed in 2015 set the ambitious goal to maintain temperatures between 1.5°C and 2°C.

Press Release: The time to act is now

We can achieve the Paris climate target of 1.5c global warming if governments act now, according to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its upcoming special report on global warming.

Press Release: Outdated outlook or modern vision – what would Poland really gain from more ambitious climate action in Europe

The new scientific report on climate change shows that limiting global warming well to 1.5°C is still possible but that it will require action and a lot of political courage. In Europe, climate impacts are more and more tangible and yet the majority of politicians continue to support dirty energies, this despite of the fact that many alternatives do exist. European governments and particularly Poland that will lead the next UN Climate negotiations in December must show that they are serious about the future and the safety of their citizens. In this event, the Greens will look at the latest science of climate change, assess the latest effort done at EU level and discuss one of the most pressing issues: the quick phasing out of coal in a green and just way.
