Contribution of the woodworking sector in the carbon balance

Public Hearing Mestre, Italy

The EESC is preparing an opinion for the European authorities, which will assess the possible contribution of the European woodwork industry to increase economic well-being and reduce the environmental impact in terms of CO2 emissions. It will concern particularly the implementation of the recent EU legislation on accounting rules on emissions and removals of greenhouse gas emissions resulting from activities related to forestry. The EESC will adopt recommendations on how Member States can increase carbon storage by increasing the pool of harvested wood products. In order to exchange views on this topic with representatives of local civil society, the Committee will hold a hearing in Mestre, to which anyone interested can participate, subject to prior registration online.

    Immigration needs a courageous and inclusive European approach

    With hundreds of thousands of refugees a year crossing the Mediterranean, Member States such as Italy, Malta and Greece are reaching the limits of their capacity. Securing borders and accommodating asylum seekers cannot be left to just a handful of Member States but has to be addressed at European level. Immigration policy needs to be aligned, not least to ensure recruitment for an aging labour market. At the request of the Italian Presidency, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) drew up an opinion on "European immigration policies" which was adopted by a large consensus vote of 161 to 6, with 6 abstentions at the EESC's plenary session on 10 September.
