Welcome to the ENVI Committee website.
Counting 69 Members, the ENVI Committee is the leading legislative Committee of the European Parliament.
ENVI Members are actively working on improving food information to consumers, notably through the regulation of labelling and placing of the market of products. ENVI is committed to proposing European solutions to public health issues.
It is also responsible for a wide range of policy areas including air and water pollution, waste management, or the protection of biodiversity, to name a few.Members are dedicated to promoting a resource-efficient and sustainable Europe.
The fight against climate change is at the core of the committee's work. It will be high on the agenda early in this legislature, in view of upcoming climate summits which will be critical for the adoption of an international climate agreement, expected in 2015. The cultivation of GMOs and their possible restriction or prohibition in Member States will be another area of focus at the outset of this parliamentary term.
We hope that this website will provide you with extensive insight in our work and invite you to comment on any topic which is of importance to you.
