The Climate Pledge

Our Members of the European Parliament can be European climate leaders. As European citizens we have the power to make this happen. Climate Action Network Europe has launched a campaign that calls on all MEP candidates to commit to tackling climate change throughout their term of office should they be elected to the European Parliament.

Between the 22nd and the 25th May 2014, people across Europe voted for their European representatives. The new European Parliament will have the power to decide and influence crucial policies related to climate and energy. Now is the time to make your voice heard.

Let your new MEPs know you care about climate action and ask them to sign the climate pledge.

Ask them to read the pledge and sign up if they want to support more ambitious climate action in the next European Parliamentary term.

MEP Scorecards

CAN Europe has developed a simple overview of how MEPs, from the current parliamentary term 2009-2014, have voted on ten issues related to climate change and energy. This analysis has been compiled into scorecards that rate national political parties and European political groups based on the voting behavior of their respective MEPs. The scorecards illustrate broadly the positions of national political parties on climate and energy and how they relate to European decision-making. The scorecard summary also outlines how countries fare overall.

The Pledge

I recognise the importance of tackling climate change at the European level. Failure to act will cost the European economy billions of Euro a year and will have even greater human costs. This includes the growing impacts of climate change in developing countries where support for climate action is essential.

I am however convinced that tackling climate change will bring a healthier future for our children, new jobs, energy security as well as many other major benefits for both the European population and the international community.

As a candidate Member of the European Parliament, I commit to support the development of climate and energy policies that set us on a roadmap to decarbonisation.

 

In particular I pledge:

1. To support the organisation of an urgency debate on climate action at the start of the European Parliament's activities;

2. To make support for adequate climate change action a prerequisite for supporting nominations of any new member of the European Commission;

3. To support the adoption by the European Parliament of a position that addresses the urgent need for stronger climate action in the EU. This position will support a post-2020 climate and energy policy framework that includes ambitious and binding targets on the following: greenhouse gas emission reductions, renewable energy and energy efficiency.

This pledge is a European-wide call to action on climate change. In some circumstances, CAN Europe members will adjust this pledge to also address more nationally relevant issues on climate change and energy.
