This page is also available in:

Fil-11 ta’ Diċembru 2019, il-Kummissjoni Ewropea nediet il-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew li jsaħħaħ l-impenn tal-UE li tindirizza l-isfidi relatati mal-klima u l-ambjent li huwa l-kompitu l-iżjed importanti ta’ din il-ġenerazzjoni. L-objettiv tal-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew huwa li jittrasforma l-UE f’ekonomija moderna, effiċjenti fl-użu tar-riżorsi u kompetittiva, filwaqt li jiżgura:

  • l-ebda emissjoni netta ta' gassijiet serra sal-2050;
  • it-tkabbir ekonomiku jkun diżakkoppjat mill-użu tar-riżorsi;
  • l-ebda persuna u l-ebda post ma jitħallew jibqgħu lura.

Biex twettaq il-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew, l-UE qed twettaq pakkett komprensiv ta’ inizjattivi, inklużi proposti ta’ politika u leġiżlattivi u l-iżvilupp u l-modernizzazzjoni tal-istrumenti ta’ finanzjament.

Il-KESE ilu jappella għal “Patt Ekoloġiku u Soċjali”, filwaqt li jenfasizza r-rabta mill-qrib bejn il-Patt Ekoloġiku u l-ġustizzja soċjali. Huwa essenzjali li tinstema’ l-vuċi tal-partijiet ikkonċernati kollha sabiex f’ambjent san jitrawmu l-kumpaniji sostenibbli u kompetittivi tal-futur.

Il-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew għamel enfasi qawwija fuq l-investiment u l-finanzjament tat-tranżizzjoni ekoloġika u sostenibbli. Il-Patt Ekoloġiku huwa essenzjali biex l-Ewropa toħroġ mill-pandemija tal-COVID-19. Terz tal-investimenti ta’ EUR 1,8 triljun mill-Pjan ta’ Rkupru tan-NextGenerationEU, u l-baġit ta’ seba’ snin tal-UE, jiffinanzjaw il-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew. Din l-ispinta fl-opportunitajiet ta’ finanzjament għandha l-għan li tbiddel il-kriżi f’opportunità trasformattiva għall-futur tal-Ewropa.

Il-KESE għandu rwol kruċjali fil-monitoraġġ tal-implimentazzjoni tal-inizjattivi u l-azzjonijiet tal-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew. Il-KESE jħejji Opinjonijiet u jorganizza attivitajiet (ara l-menu sekondarju fuq ix-xellug ta’ din il-paġna) biex jiżgura li l-istituzzjonijiet tal-UE jqisu l-fehmiet tas-soċjetà ċivili organizzata u li l-inizjattivi tal-Patt Ekoloġiku jkunu koerenti maċ-ċirkostanzi ekonomiċi, soċjali u ċiviċi fil-prattika.

Minħabba n-natura trasversali u komprensiva tiegħu, il-Patt Ekoloġiku Ewropew huwa kopert mis-Sezzjonijiet kollha tal-KESE u mis-CCMI.

    Micro enterprises and SMEs (MSME) in all fields need good conditions to survive the health and economic crisis and unlock their potential so that they can grow and create jobs. This opinion examines alternatives to address the administrative ("paper tax") burden on MSMEs, particularly in view of current transparency and disclosure measures to achieve the EU's social and environmental objectives.

    In this opinion, the EESC underlines that the Action Plan on the European Pillar of Social Rights should be based on concreteness and tangibility, with actions that are measurable and accompanied by monitoring frameworks jointly agreed among relevant stakeholders and encompassing the social, environmental, and economic criteria. The EESC acknowledges the diversity and the common basis of social models across the EU. Competitiveness and higher productivity based on skills and knowledge are a sound recipe for maintaining the well-being of European societies. The EESC further believes that greater efforts can be made at EU and Member State level in the area of combating poverty, in line with the first Sustainable Development Goal under the UN 2030 Agenda.
