Frans Timmermans debates #EUGreenDeal in Corona and explains Why Green Recovery plan is not a Luxury

Frans Timmermans: Green recovery plan for the corona crisis is not a luxury, but a necessary duty! The committee strongly believes that a green recovery is possible, according to Timmermans, who therefore adheres to the Green Deal that should make Europe climate neutral by 2050. He pointed to the broad alliance – of companies, unions and seventeen member states, including the Netherlands – that wants to make climate law central to the economic recovery. “The route there must be irreversible,” said the Dutchman. “That is not a luxury, but a necessary duty.”
