The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is inviting the Covenant of Mayors' community to take part in an online consultation on the EU Climate Pact
Despite the present challenges, the work on the Green Deal remains a key political objective for the CoR and other EU Institutions, a relevant reference to ensure that the post-pandemic recovery strategy is sustainable and future-proof. The current crisis could be considered as an opportunity to revamp the EU economy with a view to transition towards climate neutrality.
On the 4th of March the European Commission released a consultation on the Climate Pact, the instrument intended to ensure the involvement and active engagement of local and regional authorities, citizens and all relevant stakeholders in the Green Deal. Consequently, in order to ensure the appropriate involvement of the Local and Regional Authorities, the European Commission addressed a specific referral to the CoR, asking for an outlook opinion on the subject.
Rafał Trzaskowski, the rapporteur leading the CoR's work on the Climate Pact aims at elaborating a comprehensive and ambitious opinion on this fundamental tool that will be guiding us in the coming years.
