Next week, the European Commission is going to unveil its “Fit for 55” package. As part of this ambitious plan to ensure that the EU meets its climate goals by 2030, it will propose to revise the Energy Taxation Directive (ETD). We are seriously concerned that the legal basis used by the Commission to revise the ETD will exclude the European Parliament from the decision-making process on this crucial file.

For this reason, EEB together with Client Earth sent this letter to the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, calling on the need to revise ETD in order to fit into the objectives of the European Green Deal.
