Making the European Parliament greener

Helmut KOHL Building in the European Parliament in Brussels

Members of the European Parliament have been allocated the possibility of requesting two suitably sized plants for their offices in Brussels. In a statement issued by the office of the Quaestors in the EU, it was said that the step was taken with the aim of decreasing stress and improving the working environment within the EU building in Brussels.  David Casa, Chair-in-Office of the Quaestors, said that the initiative is aimed to improve the working environment, “As studies show, plants have a positive impact on the working environment, making it more attractive, improving air quality, and boosting well-being in general.”

Besides, common areas in all European Parliament buildings will be gradually furnished with adequate greenery.
