The draft reports on F-Gases and ODS reinforced ENVI’s position outlining ambitious reduction goals in both cases. Fluorinated greenhouse gases, and ozone depleting substances are both causing significant damage for the environment, therefore their reduction is in line with the EU’s Green Deal as well as its climate neutrality goals. In case of F-gases, the report focuses on accelerating alternative solutions and preventing illegal trade, while the report on ODS-s highlights increased efficacy of current measures, alongside calls for their stricter enforcement.

The following day, the committee, amongst other topics, debated the SoHO regulation proposal. The parliament’s report on the proposal focuses on the protection of donors and recipients, as well as better harmonisation of national system and European health autonomy and security.
