Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU
On 1st July, Slovenia took the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. One of the four main objectives of the Slovenian Presidency is to focus on a recovery from the pandemic that is based on a digital, green and fair transition.
More concretely, 2021 is the European Year of Rail, and the Slovenian Presidency would like to take this opportunity to promote discussions on a wider use of rail transport as possibility for reducing emissions.
In relation to climate change the Council Presidency will prioritize the revision of climate and energy legislation, i.e. the ‘Fit for 55’ legislative package. In this context, it will start discussions on the proposal to revise the Directive on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD).
The Slovenian Presidency will continue negotiations on the coordination of social security systems and try to find an agreement with the European Parliament, with a view to helping consolidate the social security rights of mobile workers in the EU.
