In our first feature we look at how the Farm to Fork Strategy will revolutionise our food systems and put the continent on a path to sustainability and climate neutrality. Sharing their views on how the EU can complete the transition are co-rapporteur Herbert Dorfmann and shadow rapporteurs Clara Aguilera and Sarah Wiener.

We also look at how the Buildings Directive can update Europe’s building stock to meet the sustainability challenges of the 21st century. Rapporteur Ciarán Cuffe and shadow rapporteurs Pernille Weiss and Iskra Mihaylova explain how the EU can transform its infrastructure and building processes.

Meanwhile editor Brian Johnson sat down with one of the EU’s chief Brexit coordinators, Pedro Silva Pereira. As rapporteur for the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee’s opinion on the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), lead deputy on the implementation of the Withdrawal Agreement as well as the S&D Group’s representative on the UK Coordination Group, he speaks openly about the UK’s tortuous break from the European Union.
