Draft Press Release
Brussels … /09/2022
Action before the General Court of the European Union to contest the conditions of
introduction of wind turbines in the European Taxonomy

Four environmental Associations, Fédération environnement durable ( ) and Vent de
Raison – Wind met Redelijkheid ( ), Vent de Colère! – Fédération nationale ( ),
Vernunfkraft Bundesinitiative ( ) have started legal action for the annulment of the
European Commission decision rejecting their request for internal review of the inclusion of
wind power generation on the list of activities held as substantially beneficial to the
environment (taxonomy of economic activities).
The Associations consider that the Union executive contravenes Union climate rules with this
decision, citing in particular the fact that wind is an intermittent source of power generation
and that the Commission has not conducted a quantification of the actual contribution of wind
power generation to the reduction of greenhouse gases nor insured that the intermittency of
wind power generation does not entail calling on power generation capacity using coal, lignite
or any other solid fossil fuels.
The Associations argue that the actual contribution of wind power generation to fighting
climate change is not established as no sufficiently precise technical examination was
conducted, notably in the absence of a definition of “physical and non-physical solutions”
allegedly substantially reducing climate risks.
The Associations also state that the deployment of hundreds of thousands of industrial
turbines throughout of the territory of the Union leads to significant damage to land and
marine environment. Such damages are not appropriately taken into account in contradiction
to the principle of Do No Significant Harm (DNSH).
Also criticized separately the Union Taxonomy, which includes natural gas, is a set of rules
defining criteria selecting economic activities which may be qualified as climate friendly and
aiming to channel capital to sustainable activities for the reduction in greenhouse gas
