🚨 PUBLICATION - Il est temps de faire le bilan du Green Deal européen, le plus grand paquet de réformes jamais adopté sur le climat. #EUGreenDeal

Spoiler: en 7 ans, l'Europe va changer de visage et c'est une bonne nouvelle. Accrochez-vous. 🧶…
Déjà, le Green Deal c'est quoi?

14 lois européennes qui visent à faire baisser nos émissions de gaz à effet de serre d'au moins 55 % d'ici à 2030. Parmi elles:
✅La fin de vente des voitures thermiques,
✅Le doublement des énergies renouvelables,
✅La réforme du marché carbone
Qu'est ce qui va changer ?

On commence par l'électricité⚡️, c'est-à-dire le nerf de la guerre de la décarbonation de l'économie.

5⃣5⃣% de notre électricité proviendra du solaire et de l'éolien en 2030, permettant une sortie du charbon. Image

The @EU_Commission today adopted a revised #EU #ElectricityMarketDesign.

It will preserve the benefits of our electricity market and help reduce the costs of producing & using energy in Europe, through more #renewables.
Two instruments will be key in enhancing the stability & predictability of energy costs across the EU.

First, Power Purchase Agreements will improve access to markets and act as drivers for investment in renewables – essential to reach our #EUGreenDeal goals.
Second, Member States will guarantee a stable price to producers & consumers through Contracts for Difference, which will foster support for new renewable energy investment.

I call on the #EuropeanParliament to treat this file as a priority!

Russia’s aggression against Ukraine is causing challenges that we can only overcome in unity.

With our 2023 work programme, we want to build a Union that stands firm and united.

This year, we will turn our priorities into action by focusing on these initiatives ↓ Berlaymont building, headquarters of the European Commission
🔵 European Green Deal

The EU will further accelerate its energy transition, strengthen sustainable food and transport, and tackle food and textile waste while building healthier ecosystems.

Summary of the year: 2022 marked a structural shift in EU energy. The EU was able to manage an unprecedented situation brought by Russia aggression to Ukraine: moving away from its bigger fossil fuel supplier in a period of months. 1/n
The scale of the challenge was unforeseen for a large economy in such a short timeframe and the EU came out stronger & more united.
One year ago, there were a lot of unknowns: Enough natural gas for winter 22/23? How far higher prices could go? Would there be a recession?…
So let’s look at some key data and statistics to see how the year went: (1) Storage - storages were at historical high levels in the autumn and some are still receiving injections. Storages in the EU are now around 85% compared to around 70% one year ago. 3/n

Today, agri stakeholders & 🇪🇺 representatives are discussing the future of food & farming #AgriOutlook

But given the last attacks on green farming reforms, the @EU_Commission’s event might recommend sticking plasters rather than look at long-term solutions for #foodsecurity

A🧵 Image
Agribusiness & right-wing political allies are using the war in Ukraine as a pretext to water down #EUFarm2Fork

They claim global #foodsecurity is under threat & we need to ↗️ food production. How? With more synthetic #pesticides & #fertilisers of course!

Scroll for the truth Image
There's no EU #foodproduction issue!

Global production of grains & wheat, leading 🇺🇦🇷🇺 food exports, is high & there's no global food supply shortage

The industry's narrative is just a smokescreen to maintain industrial agriculture 🏭

& policy-makers are buying it

Last week I gave a talk at #ECCB2022_Prague, entitled “(How) can the EU Common Agricultural Policy #CAP still address the crisis of farmland biodiversity?”. Here I give a short summary of the presentation. 🧵
1/x we are facing several interlinked crises: #ClimateCrisis (extreme events like droughts, heat, floods), we are losing #biodiversity, #pollinators and natural pest control; we face soil erosion and land degradation, water scarcity and loss of water quality.
2/x Environmental factors are THE key factors leading to crop failures and risks to food security. Farming and farmers are at the core of a major conflict around land: both as a driver of losses and the sector most affected by it. We need to act fast, as it has impacts on us all.

🧵The war in #Ukraine impacts #foodsecurity in #NorthAfrica & globally. We asked what can Europe do 👉🏼 Today @EU_Commission presented its communication on safeguarding #FoodSecurity & reinforcing the resilience of #food systems 👉🏼
📖 Humanitarian assistance to #Ukraine & beyond will come partly through financial contributions to the @WFP. At the same time, the EU asks member states not to enforce export bans (as in Hungary) to avoid a rise in food prices, inflation & further conflicts. @VDombrovskis
🌿But this means, the EU allows to freeze ambitions for sustainability & resilience – derogating from greening obligations under the #EUGreenDeal & #EUFarm2Fork. Additional area of 4 million hectares can now be used for food & feed production. @jwojc @JeroenCandel @jeroenkwakbo

⛔Toxic #Pesticides alert!⛔
+50 representants of org. signed an open letter demanding @EU_Commission that the #SUD reform is ambitious enough & contains strong legally binding use reduction targets, ensuring that farmers r supported in the transition
Other demands include:
- Not postponing the much-needed reform of #SUD
- Making sure that all EU food&feed safety standards r upheld
- @EU_Commission stands by its commitment 2 #F2F & Biodiversity Strategies,transitioning away from current model & its reliance on external inputs
What are we talking about?
Well, the #EUFarmtoFork and Biodiversity Strategies are two pillars of the #EUgreendeal hugely under attack from vested interest lobby groups, now cynically using Ukraine war as an excuse to postpone green policies.

Diversification. Transformation. Independence. All at the same time.

REPowerEU is our plan to eliminate our dependence on Russian fossil fuels by 2027 and increase the resilience of the EU energy market.


To cut our dependence on Russian gas, we must diversify gas supply:

➕ LNG imports
➕ pipeline imports from non-Russian suppliers
➕ biomethane
➕ hydrogen

This can reduce EU demand for Russian gas by two thirds before the end of the year.
2️⃣ Transformation

REPowerEU will reduce faster our dependence on fossil fuels by:

💨tripling wind capacities by 2030
🌞accelerating the rollout of rooftop solar PV systems
🔋innovating hydrogen-based solutions
📝enabling faster permitting for renewable energy projects

Putin's war demonstrates the urgency of accelerating our clean energy transition.

Today we outline REPowerEU - our plan to increase Europe's energy independence:

⚡ Reduced demand for Russian fossil fuels.

⚡ Emergency measures to tackle energy prices in Europe.

We simply cannot rely on a supplier who explicitly threatens us.

We will end our overdependence on Russian gas by diversifying gas supplies and reducing faster the use of fossil fuels in our homes, buildings, industry, and power systems.

Uncertainty on supply is rising pressure on energy prices in Europe.

To stop it and secure our gas supply, EU countries will be required to ensure that underground gas storage is filled up to at least 90% of its capacity by 1 October each year.

📝Our #EUGreenDeal resolutions.

1️⃣ Planting 3 billion trees.

By 2030, we want to plant at least three billion additional trees across 🇪🇺 Europe while respecting ecological principles.

The right tree, in the right place, for the right purpose.

#3BillionTrees Image
2️⃣ Cutting methane emissions.

EU action on methane is essential to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

We proposed strict rules on methane emissions from gas, oil and coal, to reduce emissions in these sectors by 80% by 2030.

#EUGreenDeal #ReduceMethane Image
3️⃣ Reducing air, water and soil pollution.

By 2030, with our #ZeroPollution Action Plan we want to reduce:
✅ by more than 55% the health impacts of air pollution
✅ nutrient losses and chemical pesticides’ use by 50%
✅ the plastic waste in our oceans by 50%
