The “Vote Nature” alliance unveils its scoreboard for the European Parliament

A new in-depth study carried out by five major climate and environmental organisations, brought together under the “Vote Nature” alliance and comprising BEE, CAN Europe, BirdLife Europe, Transport & Environment and the WWF European Policy Office, reveals that only a minority of MEPs during the 2019 – 2024 mandate acted to protect Europe’s climate, nature and air quality. The majority of MEPs acted instead as either “procrastinators” or “prehistoric thinkers”, delaying real action with patchy and inconsistent voting records, or worse, completely failing to rise to the challenge of the crises Europe is facing.

The Scoreboard provides a comprehensive assessment of MEPs’ voting behaviour between 2019 and 2024 across 30 policy files on climate, nature, pollution, and circular economy.

It categorises political parties into three types:

🦸‍♀️ Protectors: A small yet vital group who have staunchly supported the European Green Deal.
🐌 Procrastinators: Those with inconsistent voting records, often delaying necessary actions.
🦖 Prehistoric Thinkers: Those who opposed progressive measures, obstructing crucial progress.

This June, citizens will be able to hold their representatives accountable for their recent parliamentary performance and demand higher ambition from the European Parliament in the years to come.

*The scores are based on the voting recommendations of the five European environmental organisations.
