BREAKING! Das Europäische Recht auf Reparatur ist da! Lange haben wir gewartet - gerade hat die @EU_Commission endlich ihren Gesetzesvorschlag veröffentlicht. Was ist drin im Vorschlag? #thread Spart Ressourcen & Geld: Ich begrüße den Vorschlag, Reparatur im Garantierahmen Vorrang zu geben. Defekte Smartphones oder Waschmaschinen sollen standardmäßig repariert & nicht einfach durch ein neues Produkt ersetzt werden. Gut: Auch unabhängige Werkstätten dürfen reparieren!

With the EU introducing bans and trade restrictions for iron & steel from Russia, it begs the question: what are we doing about the massive imports of wood which are financing the war? 🪵

A thread on why I demand an EU ban of all timber & wood imports from Russia & Belarus👇 1/6 In 2021, the EU imported a staggering US$3.28 billion 💰in wood and wooden furniture from Russia = that’s about a quarter of Russia’s wood exports worldwide! And Russia is using the money it makes from this to help finance the aggression against Ukraine.

Today, @EP_SingleMarket votes and exchanges on the resolution on the #right2repair.
But what do we ask from @EU_Commission to be included in their right to repair initiative? A #thread Image Repairing broken & damaged products means saving money, energy and resources, which is more needed than ever for a resilient single market. Enabling consumers to quit the throwaway society drives the shift to a circular economy. The EU must deliver on the right to repair!

Huge success! The Parliament just voted on the battery regulation, and we got everything we wanted in it! A 🧵👇
Spoiler: this is great news for the planet, for workers & communities, for consumers... and for our energy independence. We all need some positivity, so here you are: Image First, why do they matter? Building-size industrial batteries store wind or solar electricity, and enable its distribution to the grid. E-vehicles are part of the solution to decarbonising transport. And, we all have phones, laptops and (tens of) other devices with batteries. 2/8

The @europeancommission just announced it will work on a proposal for an EU ban on products made with #forcedlabour. This is a historic announcement - how did we get here? A thread 👇(1/9) Over a decade ago, the @EUparliament called for such a ban. It never went anywhere. As the #BizHumanRights discipline continued to develop, the focus was on creating obligations for companies to conduct due diligence to guarantee #humanrights and environmental protection (2/9).
