Description

The scientific community is deeply concerned about the ongoing discussions on the EU’s Green Deal. Of particular concern are the current criticisms targeting the Sustainable Use Regulation (SUR) and Nature Restoration Law (NRL). We urge policy makers to continue the legislative procedure for the SUR and the NRL, and invite opponents of the Green Deal for a consultation with scientists.

The call was led by 17 scientists and signed by 3,339 scientists across EU Member States and 17 additional countries.

Notes

This open letter is accompanied by signatures from 3339 scientists. The document has been slightly adjusted in response to comments on the initial version of 7.6.2023.
