Over the last years, the UK has been one of the most active European Union Member States in climate change policy and energy talks and it has often led the way forward. Some policies successfully implemented by the British legislation were later proposed by the European Commission for all the Member States to adopt. But on the 23rd of June 2016, the UK voters declared against the membership in the community and on March 30th Prime minister Theresa May triggered Art. 50. How does this decision affect climate change policy in the UK and in Europe? What could be the outcomes of Brexit in this field?
Au cours de ces dernières années, le Royaume-Uni a été l'un des pays les plus actifs de l'Union européenne dans les discussions relatives à la lutte contre le changement climatique. Certaines mesures adoptées avec succès à Londres ont même été présentées devant la Commission européenne en vue d'être reprises par les autres membres de l'UE. Mais le 23 juin 2016, les électeurs britanniques se prononçaient en faveur d'une sortie de l'Union, et le 30 mars le Premier ministre Theresa May a déclenché le processus. Comment cette décision affecte-t-elle la politique climatique au Royaume-Uni? Et en Europe?
