#Energyefficiency is a central principle of the #EnergyUnion strategy: it is an effective way to cut emissions, bring savings to consumers, and reduce the EU's fossil fuel import dependency. 
We  proposed revision of the energy labelling directive to return to the original A to G energy label scale, simpler and well understood by consumers. http://ec.europa.eu/energy-union

The EU Emissions Trading System (#ETS) is Europe's flagship tool for tackling #climatechange   and to place the EU on track towards a low-carbon economy.
We revised ETS to ensure that it remains the most efficient and cost-effective way to cut emission in the decade to come. What do we propose? Cut down emissions by at least 40% domestically by 2030.

ETS is a stupid mistake, delaying improvement and not punishing the criminal climate destroyer. Only civil servants are happy to keep their jobs. ETS will disappear automatically. Nobody will be astonished.

On 2 August 1944, around 3000 Roma women, children and elderly people were murdered in the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. They were among hundreds of thousands of victims of the Roma genocide, and they suffered together with others who were persecuted under the Nazi regime. It is for these victims that today we mark Roma Holocaust Memorial Day.

As Europeans, we have a joint responsibility to ensure that the atrocities of the past are recognised and lessons are learnt. History can never be allowed to repeat itself. Tolerance and respect must be the basis of our societies today and in the future. http://europa.eu/!MR44Wd

112 is the European emergency phone number, available everywhere in the EU, free of charge.

It is possible to call 112 from fixed and mobile phones to contact any emergency service: an ambulance, the fire brigade or the police.

And if your child goes missing, whether at home or in another EU country, you can call 116000, the hotline for missing children, from most EU countries.

“I am planning to travel through several EU countries this summer, mostly by coach and ship. I already know about the EU’s passenger rights for air and rail travel, but is there any protection for people using other modes of transport?”

Nine countries have already contributed to our Investment Plan for Europe- #investEU: UK, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovakia and Bulgaria.

Member States can contribute either at the level of the risk-bearing capacity (complementing the contributions from the EU budget and the EIB), through an investment platform or by directly co-financing certain projects and activities.

The Juncker Plan for Investment in Europe: What is the EFSI?
The European Fund for Strategic Investments (‪#‎EFSI‬) is at the heart of our Investment Plan for Europe. EFSI's challenge is to break the vicious circle of under-confidence and under-investment, and to make use of liquidity held by financial institutions, corporations and individuals at a time when public resources are scarce.

Last week, we put the final building blocks in place to kick-start investment in the real economy, ensuring that EFSI is up and running by autumn.

Find more on EFSI and ‪#‎InvestEU‬ here http://ec.europa.eu/invest-eu

Story
Tagline
Official G+ Page of the European Commission
Introduction
The Commission's job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

Mission
The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole.

Description
The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.

Visit http://www.europa.eu/ if you want to learn more about the EU, or call the free service number 00 800 6789 10 11 from anywhere in the EU, they speak all 24 official languages.
