The study analyses the European Parliament’s (EP) carbon footprint in the context of the recent EP resolutions, in which it declared a climate emergency in Europe and requested the development of a strategy to become itself carbon-neutral by 2030.

The analysis takes into account the various sources contributing to the EP's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including those related to its function in three different sites and the traveling of its Members and staff.
