Manifesto for the European elections 2019
After 25 years of successful work, the Intergroup on Climate Change, Biodiversity, and Sustainable Development constitutes one of the longest standing and respected Intergroups in the European Parliament. Since its establishment in 1994, it has brought together Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from all political groups and parliamentary committees and Member States with the objective of finding sustainable solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our times.
Working with people, for people and nature, to advance innovative solutions for a sustainable, fair and inclusive society, building on a resource-efficient, circular economy, climate neutrality and nature protection.
According to a 2018 Eurobarometer survey, 75% of EU citizens expressed support for increased EU action towards the environment. In order to contribute to this objective, the Intergroup provides a forum for discussion, aiming at sharing cross-sectoral experiences, bringing expertise and knowledge from different disciplinary areas on ongoing legislative initiatives, to support policy-makers in the achievement of a sustainable, competitive society, building on a resource efficient circular economy, climate neutrality and protection of nature.
