Other parliamentary activities 

Written explanations of vote 
Members can submit a written explanation of their vote in plenary. Rule 194

Eurojust-Denmark Agreement on judicial cooperation in criminal matters (A8-0192/2019 - Claude Moraes) ES  
 

Tras la «lisbonización» de Eurojust se ha considerado necesario un Acuerdo de Cooperación Judicial Penal entre Eurojust y Dinamarca. Habida cuenta del régimen especial al que se acoge Dinamarca en el ámbito de la justicia penal tras el Tratado de Lisboa (Protocolo n.º 22), Dinamarca no participa en el nuevo Reglamento y este no es vinculante para dicho país. No obstante, Dinamarca expresó su deseo de seguir participando en las actividades de Eurojust. Dado que se trata de una cuestión, a priori , específicamente administrativa y de funcionamiento de la Unión, he votado a favor.

CO2 emission performance standards for new heavy-duty vehicles (A8-0354/2018 - Bas Eickhout) ES  
 

He votado a favor de este informe porque, aunque creo que debería ser más ambicioso, me parece importante que se sigan dando pasos en la lucha contra el cambio climático y una parte fundamental en esta lucha es la fijación de objetivos serios de cara a la reducción de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero en vehículos pesados, teniendo como objetivo unas emisiones cero.

Promotion of clean and energy-efficient road transport vehicles (A8-0321/2018 - Andrzej Grzyb) ES  
 

He votado en contra de este informe porque, aunque contiene aspectos positivos como la distinción de «vehículos limpios» cuando el combustible alternativo empleado no contiene ni biocombustibles procedentes de plantas de cultivo para alimentación animal ni aceite de palma, considero que no es suficientemente ambicioso en cuanto a los objetivos fijados y las fechas de aplicación de las medidas establecidas. También considero que no se da suficiente importancia a la necesidad de reducir la producción y uso de vehículos como parte de un cambio de modelo de producción y consumo necesario.

Written questions 
Members can submit a specific number of questions to the President of the European Council, the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union, for written answer. Rule 138, Annex III
