European Citizens' Initiative: 'Fur free Europe'

At a Glance 11-10-2023

Farming of animals for fur raises significant concerns regarding animal welfare, the environment and public health. A European Citizens' Initiative, 'Fur Free Europe’, calls for an EU-wide ban on the keeping and killing of fur animals as well as the placing of farmed fur and fur products on the EU market. The European Parliament is expected to hold a debate on the subject during its second plenary session in the month of October.
