The European Environmental Bureau share its views with EU Environmental Ministers on the issues on the agenda of the forthcoming EU Environment Council, including on how a range of items on the agenda are ever more important in light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine – notably making the Fit for 55 package even more important given the multiple benefits of being fossil-fuel independent. Furthermore, we wish to flag that some actors are instrumentalizing concerns about the war to undermine the European Green Deal – as can be seen with attacks on the Emissions Trading System (ETS), also on the Farm to Fork Strategy and the Biodiversity Strategy using arguments of food security concerns.
