Hoewel snel en effectief zijn voor de groei van planten, brengen chemische pesticiden mogelijke risico's met zich mee voor de gezondheid van mens, dier en milieu. Ongeveer 45% van het voedsel dat wij consumeren, bevat residuen van bestrijdingsmiddelen volgens de Europese Autoriteit voor Voedselveiligheid. De EP-leden willen het gebruik van natuurlijke bestrijdingsmiddelen een impuls geven en het goedkeuringsproces vereenvoudigen en versnellen. Bekijk de video voor meer informatie.

Het handelsakkoord tussen de EU en Canada, CETA, werd op 15 februari door het EP goedgekeurd. Dit betekent dat de overeenkomst, die meer dan 99% van de tarieven op de handel tussen de EU en Canada zal wegnemen, vanaf april voorlopig in werking kan treden. De rapporteur Artis Pabriks (EVP) zei: "Europa kan niet overleven zonder vrije en eerlijke handel en hoogwaardige interactie met andere wereldspelers." Hij beschreef CETA verder als "de gouden standaard voor toekomstige handelsovereenkomsten". (Lees meer: CETA: “Dit handelsakkoord is zowel geopolitiek als economisch belangrijk” )
