EP green agenda

What´s Parliament green agenda? EU policies have taken on a distinct green hue: Reducing EU impact on the environment has become a priority. An article by EP Press service explains what politicians mean by green.
According to Amalia Sartori, who chairs the industry, research and energy committee,   the aim is to decarbonise the economy and that everyone, from industry to public bodies and citizens had a role to play. "Green energy is the future and industry will have to follow the trend that has become a reality in Europe and in the whole world", she states. The Parliament is currently working on an energy efficiency directive and will soon start negotiations with the Council and the Commission.
Likewise, Zalba Bidegain, vice-chair of the economic and monetary affairs committee,  says a green economy based on renewable energy would stimulate Europe's technological development. "Moreover, this green economy will allow us to find new ways to generate jobs, wealth and respect the environment", she adds.  
Speaking of jobs, Pervenche Bères, chair of the employment committee, stresses  that "minimising energy consumption, reducing waste and pollution or even safeguarding biodiversity, a green job may take several forms.”
