The fight against climate change is a necessity.
A necessity for our planet, a necessity for our economic prosperity, and a necessity for our strategic independence.
Europeans are aware of the threat of climate change and are willing to act ↓

"We are not going to dilute our ambition," European Commission Executive Vice-President Maros Sefcovic said in a joint media interview on Tuesday in Brussels
Kate Abnett: NEW: EU's new green chief vows not to weaken ambition
The EU will not dilute its efforts to fight climate change despite political pushback - but needs to communicate better with industries worried about the cost of green policies, says @MarosSefcovic
RT Maroš Šefčovič🇪🇺
The #EUGreenDeal is the EU's response to the strong call from citizens to act #ClimateActionNow. It is our green growth strategy.
Great exchange with @EP_President. We will work together to close the open legislative files swiftly, for the benefit of our industry & our citizens.
EU imports of Russian fossil fuels have fallen dramatically 👇
❌ no more Russian coal
📉 oil imports down by around 90%
📉 gas imports down by around 2/3
We are saving energy, installing more renewables, and finding alternative suppliers.
Re @_RennRadFahrer @Energy4Europe @MiguelGilTertre @KadriSimson @JorgensenJuul @MarosSefcovic @DanaSpinant @MamerEric @vonderleyen We need to look at the bigger picture. Yes, LNG has increased slightly, but overall imports of Russian gas are down massively. And we keep working to bring imports down even more.
Re @thierry_bros Yes. But let’s put it in context:
Total EU gas imports from Russia (LNG + pipeline) dropped from 155 bcm in 2021 to 80bcm in 2022, and to 21bcm in the first half of 2023.
Russian gas has fallen from a 45% share of EU imports in 2021 to 24% in 2022 and now less than 15%.
Re @JackLovell313 Indeed, changing modes of transport is one way to save energy, as we said in this joint @EU_Commission @IEA campaign
