Eurosolar and WCRE call on EU Parliament to reject taxonomy draft

Ahead of Wednesday’s (July 6) vote in the European Parliament, the European Renewable Energy Association Eurosolar and the World Council for Renewable Energy (WCRE) have called on MEPs to reject the draft EU taxonomy presented by the EU Commission. The draft still includes the inclusion of gas and nuclear power in the taxonomy, an EU classification system for sustainable investments that comes with significant benefits. The Parliament’s Economic and Environment Committees have rejected the Commission’s proposal, and Eurosolar and WCRE are now calling on the plenary to do the same »in the interest of a secure, climate-stable and prosperous future« and to stop the »greenwashing of nuclear power and gas.«
