Election of the Commission

  Judith Bunting (Renew). – Madam President, as a British MEP I am proud to be part of a sovereign nation that works alongside our partners in Europe to tackle climate change. Throughout Europe, governments and local councils have been declaring a climate emergency, but today this Parliament became the first parliament in the world to declare a climate emergency across a continent.

We must take urgent action to reverse the damage done to our planet before it is too late. Time is running out. It is imperative that we all reduce our carbon footprint in every aspect of our lives. From the food on our plate to the technology we use, from the exploitation of our oceans and the imports from trade outside our block, we will work together to reduce our footprint, not just in Europe but also across the globe. Change starts here!
