Germany, Denmark, Luxembourg, Austria and Portugal warn against including nuclear in the proposed EU taxonomy


 The environment ministers of five EU member states including Germany
warned against including nuclear power in the proposed EU taxonomy at the
sidelines of the UN Cop 26 climate conference in Glasgow today.

In a jointstatement issued by the environment ministers of Germany, Denmark,
Luxembourg, Austria and Portugal, the signatories warn that including
nuclear in the taxonomy would permanently damage the latter’s “integrity,
credibility and therefore its usefulness”.

The EU taxonomy is to establish criteria for environmentally sustainable economic practices, steering
funding towards these activities. German caretaker environment minister
Svenja Schulze said that “nuclear power is too risky, too expensive”, and
in any case would come too late to make a notable contribution to
mitigating climate warming.
