FoodDrinkEurope position: proposal for an EU Climate Law

Published: 29/05/2020

The food and drink industry welcomes the Commission’s proposal for a European climate law, which was published on 4 March. The enshrinement of the 2050 climate neutrality goal in legislation and the holistic view taken by the Commission in the context of the European Green Deal will help engage all economic actors collectively in a common trajectory and encourage the swifter development of enabling conditions. It is also essential to provide long term guidance and predictability to businesses to invest in the transition.
