The EU’s executive European Commission will nonetheless deploy its new “Green Deal” plan in the coming weeks, President Emmanuel Macron’s office said, despite Poland being left out for now.

“Without waiting, this agreement will allow the Commission to deploy its Green Deal in the coming weeks,” the Elysee said.
