  • The recovery of European economies after the coronavirus pandemic may become – thanks to national recovery plans financed by the EU funds – a prelude to catching up with climate goals.
  • WWF Poland points to the need to improve water management, increase the role of forests in climate protection, create a system of energy self-sufficiency for schools and public buildings, convert vans into zero-emission ones, improve public transport and cycling infrastructure and decarbonize energy and develop energy storage.
  • MEP Adam Jarubas (EPP) pointed out that the lack of support for the EU’s climate objectives may make it more difficult for Poland to access funding and therefore make it harder to achieve green transformation.
