Europe: The new rules on alternative fuel infrastructure co-organized by MEP Elena Kountoura were voted on by the European Parliament’s Plenary session.
It works as a reminder of the team’s policy both in the preparation of the relevant report by the TRAN Committee on the new European AFIR Regulation and in the negotiations of the trilogues they started a year ago.
She said that they voted on the proposal for the Nature Restoration Regulation, a critical legislation in the fight for the environment and survival.
Nature restoration measures should cover at least 20% of the EU land and sea areas by 2030 and all ecosystems that need restoration by 2050. Member States should develop national nature restoration plans to achieve these goals, which the Commission will evaluate.
MEP Elena Kountoura said, “An important victory in the European Parliament for the protection of nature, the environment and our lives. Despite strong reactions, the Restore Nature Commission proposal was voted out.”
An important step for the green transition to transfers is overvoting the AFIR regulation, which she formulated by pushing for sufficient charging stations and the protection of consumers against non-profit phenomena.
It is now necessary for Member States to implement it correctly by securing sufficient European and national funding for infrastructure to meet the transport needs of everyone without exclusion.
MEP Elena Kountoura also presented her intervention at the European Parliament’s Plenary Session on the discussion on alternative fuels under the Fit for 55 legislative package.
The Commission has targeted the Green Transport Transition but the policies mentioned are not coherent and undermines the role of rail. She also presented her introduction to the TRAN Committee of the EC after the presentation of the new legislative package of the Commission.
She said, “Our priority in the use of drones should be the least dangerous and most socially beneficial activities, such as in the health sector. My speech at the EC TRAN Committee in the context of the discussion on drones in Europe.”
