How the UK benefits from EU action on climate change
EU action on climate change has delivered tangible benefits for the UK in the form of jobs, growth and financial savings for households. MEPs have a critical role in continuing to secure these benefits. In 2014, they face a new term with a packed agenda of climate change and energy legislation, including agreeing Europe’s 2030 framework for tackling climate change, a review of the Energy Efficiency Directive, reform of the emissions trading system and input into Europe’s negotiating position for the 2015 global climate change talks.
This policy insight makes the strong case for ambitious European policy and the benefits it can deliver for member states; knowledge that should support MEPs in continuing to push for change in the decisions that lie ahead.
