A Resolution of the European Parliament on a European Energy Charter (Friday 12 July 1991) wholly supports the initiative to establish a European Energy Charter based on the pooling of resources and know-how throughout Europe and welcomes the conference shortly to be held on this subject. The Parliament reaffirms the need for the European Community to formulate a genuine common energy policy which would, in particular, guarantee security of supply, partly through the implementation of an active external policy in this area, in addition to making full use of the Community's internal resources. Inter alia, the preparation of the Charter should take into account the diversity of energy strategies in the different Member States, and involve the social partners of the Member States and of the States of Central and Eastern Europe. The Commission must play a major role in the implementation and management of the Charter, which must be considered an integral part of an effective common energy policy.
