BONN/BRUSSELS, May 31, 2010 – The first major UN climate negotiations following the failure of talks in Copenhagen last December begin today. The European Union must play an active role in progressing the talks by reaffirming its commitment to legally binding emission cuts under the Kyoto Protocol and committing sufficient public money for developing countries to tackle climate change, says Friends of the Earth Europe.
Brussels, May 27 – A meeting of the World Bank in Brussels was targeted by campaigners today urging it to stop financing fossil fuel projects.
European Commission must press ahead with bold climate action
Brussels, 26 May – Research published today by the European Commission on the impact of cutting more of Europe's climate-changing emissions by 2020 has been welcomed by Friends of the Earth Europe.  The environment group warned however that the EU must further increase its ambition to a 40% reduction in domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and avoid reliance on carbon trading as the solution to the climate crisis.
Brussels, March 26 - European leaders meeting formally today for the first time since the disappointment of December's Copenhagen talks did not breathe much-needed new life into efforts to combat climate change.
Brussels, 26 March – New research released by the European Commission confirms that Europe's demand for biofuels is likely to contribute to climate change and harm the environment. 
Adrian Bebb, agrofuels campaign coordinator for Friends of the Earth Europe said: "The EU's biofuel policy is looking more and more unsustainable and if not urgently reviewed will lead to deforestation, more climate changing emissions and damage to the environment. It is time to end this madness and bring in real solutions to the climate crisis."
Brussels, March 15 - European Environment Ministers met today to discuss the next steps after the failure of the UN conference in Copenhagen last December. While it is positive that they stick to the existing negotiating texts under the Kyoto Protocol as the basis for a future agreement, Friends of the Earth Europe believes that the Council's conclusions have shortcomings which prevent the EU from achieving a strong and fair solution to the climate crisis.
Brussels, March 9 - Today the European Commission released its communication on International climate policy post-Copenhagen, initiated by the new Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard.  Although the communication contains positive elements since it holds on to the idea of binding emission reduction targets under the Kyoto protocol and the existing negotiating texts, Friends of the Earth Europe is critical of the communication for failing to offer ambition needed on emission reductions.
Brussels, 23 February 2010 – On the day of the release of annual industry-sponsored figures, a new report from Friends of the Earth International reveals that claims made by the biotech industry that genetically modified (GM) crops can combat climate change are both exaggerated and premature. 
Last-minute lobbying by industry has stopped the Hungarian parliament from adopting a climate law in its current term.
Following successful campaigning by Friends of the Earth Hungary's Big Ask campaign, the Hungarian Climate Bill was included on the Parliamentary agenda in mid-February and received support from all parties. But industries afraid of being detrimentally affected by the law have succeeded in blocking it at the last moment.
Brussels, February 8 – Putting more electric cars on the road could increase carbon emissions unless they run on green energy, says a new independent report commissioned jointly by Friends of the Earth Europe, Greenpeace and Transport & Environment. The environmental organisations call for national renewable electricity targets to ensure electric vehicles are truly 'zero emissions'.
