Proposal for a European Climate Law

29 April 2020 | On 4 March 2020, the European Commission proposed the European Climate Law (ECL), officially called the “Regulation for Establishing the Framework for Achieving Climate Neutrality”.

BirdLife Europe and Central Asia and its German partner NABU - Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union propose amendments to the proposal which aim to hasten action on climate change whilst protecting, and utilising the carbon sink potential of biodiversity. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 and unforeseen economic consequences, it will be even more important, to stick to the legislation proposed by the European Green Deal and steer the economy towards a just and environmental friendly recovery through the first European Climate Law.
