CEMR Engages in Talks with the European Commission on Green Deal Implementation at the Local and Regional Level
The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) convened this week with Maroš Šefčovič, Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal at the European Commission. The meeting was an important opportunity for CEMR to engage with the Commission to discuss the implementation of the European Green Deal at the local and regional levels.
Federica Bordelot, Director of Policy and Impact, and Marlon Hilden, Climate Sustainable Finance Officer, took part in the discussions. During the meeting, they highlighted the significance of Local and Regional Governments' (LRGs) involvement in realising the goals of the European Green Deal. The CEMR delegation seized the occasion to showcase exemplary initiatives outlined in their latest studies, underlining successful models that can be replicated across European municipalities and regions. CEMR also raised concerns about the comparatively low participation of LRGs in decision-making processes and policy implementation. Addressing this issue is crucial for ensuring the inclusivity and effectiveness of environmental policies on the ground.
The dialogue emphasised the importance of a coordinated effort between the European Commission and local and regional entities to create a sustainable and resilient future. As discussions continue, CEMR remains dedicated to contributing valuable insights and advocating for the active involvement of Local and Regional Governments in shaping and executing environmental policies across Europe.
