Environment committee chair Pascal Canfin MEP on the climate law and circular economy plan

The first 100 days of Ursua von der Leyen’s European Commission culminated this week with the publication of the ‘climate law’ proposal, part of the European Green Deal, which would set a 2050 decarbonisation target. ENDS interviewed by email the liberal Renew Europe group’s chair of the European Parliament’s environment committee, Pascal Canfin, about the commission’s progress on climate and environmental policy.
