In an initial general reaction to the Commission communication on the European Green Deal, the European Parliament calls for a new Animal Welfare Strategy, and an Animal Welfare Framework Law.

In paragraph 66 of the European Parliament resolution of 15 January 2020 on the European Green Deal (2019/2956(RSP)), the parliamentarians also consider it important to raise existing animal welfare standards, to develop new ones, and to start infringement procedures against systemic non-compliance.
