Proposal for a regulation
Article 5 – paragraph 4 a (new)
4a. In order to ensure continuous progress towards the achievement of climate neutrality set out in articles 1and 2, the Commission and the Member States shall fully take into account the obligations set out in the Article 3(b) of Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment and in Article 3, paragraph 1 and Article 4 of Directive 2001/42/EC on the assessment of the effects of certain plans and programmes on the environment as with a view to address the greenhouse gas emissions of public and private projects during their whole life cycle, such as those occurring in the construction and operational phase and including indirect emissions in a project’s value chain. In addition, any energy and transport infrastructure projects must, upon independent assessment, be deemed consistent with the 2030, 2050 and possibly 2040 climate objectives and coherent with the Union objective of building a fully renewables- based, highly resource and energy- efficient, climate-neutral and circular economy.
