The European Parliament’s Public Health and Food Safety Committee is responsible for legislation relating to environmental policies. It also works on European solutions to health problems, and scrutinises food safety regulations.
One of the most significant conservation challenges Europe faces today is climate change. While we recognize the urgent need to address this issue, Europe needs solutions that work, and should not be to the detriment of jobs and growth. Our parliamentarians have been leading efforts to support the move to a low carbon economy, while acknowledging the differing capabilities of Member States to develop climate solutions that are economically feasible and implementable, and tested for their impact on European competitiveness.
Our MEPs are at the forefront of negotiations to improve the existing regulatory framework for food and food additives, through the strengthening of surveillance, labelling and enforcement measures.
ECR MEPs have worked tirelessly on legislation to enhance the safety of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, as well as campaigns highlighting the fight against counterfeit medicinal products, measures to combat drug resistance, and recommendations to improve patient safety provisions.
ECR Members of the ENVI Committee:
ECR MEPs are working hard to ensure that the many concerns of Europe’s citizens are properly reflected in environmental, health and food safety legislation. Our work comprises issues ranging from the regulation of dangerous and toxic chemicals, to the management, recycling and disposal of waste, the improvement of air and water quality, to the preservation of Europe’s biodiversity.
