A broad civil society alliance handed over more than 330,000 signatures against the EU Commission’s proposal for the taxonomy regulation to the Greens today. The designated federal chairwoman of Bündnis 90/Die Grünen, Ricarda Lang, accepted the signatures.
With the handover to the party chair, the alliance organizations BUND, Campact, Deutsche Umwelthilfe, Bürgerbewegung Finanzwende, Greenpeace, IPPNW, NABU, Munich Environmental Institute and Uranium Network are appealing “No to nuclear and gas” directly to the green governing party.
The alliance explains: “It is high time that the traffic light coalition showed its colors when it came to the EU taxonomy. Gas and nuclear power are not sustainable. That must now be formulated clearly. We call on the governing parties, both in the EU Council of Ministers, to to agree to the EU Commission’s proposal and, if necessary, to file a lawsuit with the European Court of Justice. If the traffic light coalition wants to act credibly on climate protection, it needs a clear no.”
