For a cleaner and safer planet
The Socialists and Democrats have a vision for a fairer and more sustainable Europe, a society that puts the people's well-being first and thinks of the environmental legacy for future generations. We can achieve this through greater energy efficiency, a circular economy and by tackling climate change. This goes hand in hand with renewing European industries, moving towards a sustainable-growth model and creating new jobs. We are fighting for a Europe where everyone has access to wholesome food and good quality, affordable healthcare.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic struck, the importance of our work has been highlighted more than ever. We reacted early with a full action plan to tackle the pandemic and we have been working hard to ensure every measure possible is considered and given the democratic scrutiny citizens expect.
Our work on the environment, public health and food safety
Our MEPs promote our progressive vision in this committee in a wide range of policy areas including waste and resource management, air and water quality and the protection of biodiversity, among many other areas of importance to us all.
