Local and regional leaders call for a green recovery and higher climate ambition in the run-up to COP26

The members of the Commission for the Environment, Climate change and Energy (ENVE) of the European Committee of the Regions met virtually to debate on how to ensure a COVID-19 recovery that is green and inclusive and brings along higher climate ambition ahead of the UN's climate summit in Glasgow next November. The meeting included the presentation of four draft opinions: safe and sustainable chemicals for a toxic-free environment, an EU strategy for energy system integration, protecting the maritime environment, and stepping up Europe's 2030 climate ambition towards COP26.
