Ahead of the Special European Council on 17-18 July and the G20 Finance Ministers Summit on July 18-19 2020, these letters call on EU decision-makers to support an EU recovery package which will support a green and just transition through:
for the new funds;
➢ explicitly excluding fossil fuels from all EU funding;
➢ requiring Member States to tailor all EU core and recovery funding plans to deliver on an enhanced 2030 climate target, and the transition to climate neutrality before midcentury.
The letters also call on EU decision-makers to follow this in the international arena through supporting a statement on a just and sustainable reboot, a green recovery at the G20 Finance Minister Summit.
