EU Pollinators Initiative (debate)
MPphoto
 

  Liudas Mažylis (PPE). – Mr President, there are no doubts about pollinators’ decline, so a scientific approach to the problem is required. The consequences can only be dealt with once the causes have been eliminated. Everything we do to prevent biodiversity loss must be based on science and ambitious, but realisable, goals. To prevent pollinators’ decline, the 2013 EFSA bee guidance should be fully adopted as soon as it is possible. Regulation No 1107 of 2011 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market should be amended with regard to chronic toxicity, and not only for honey bees, but expanding requirements towards other pollinators. A blank impact assessment and standardised monitoring by pollinators should be an important aim for the European Commission and the Member States.
