    Several national Friends of the Earth groups sent a letter to MEPs, Environment Ministers and Permanent Representations from the Czech Republic, Denmark, Malta and Netherlands, asking them to put high environmental ambition at the heart of the future negotiation with the UK.

    The negotiation is seen as a test for the European Green Deal and for the ambitious environmental path set by the new Commission. The NGOs call for environmental and social standards in the UK not to be weakened post-Brexit and be backed by a guarantee of non-regression enforced via a bilateral mechanism. They also demand a mechanism to ensure a form of ongoing alignment that “embeds transparency and democracy while respecting the sovereignty of the UK”.
