Federal Environment Ministry

The coming EU budget must “lead the way for investments in climate action” and set an example for “steering investments in the right direction”, Germany’s environment minister Barbara Hendricks says in a press release by the environment ministry (BMUB). Together with 13 other environment and climate ministers from EU countries, the so-called Green Growth Group, Hendricks has sent a letter to the EU Commission, arguing that subsidies “not in line with the Paris Agreement should be discontinued as quickly as possible”.
