POLLINIS est parvenue à faire intégrer au sein du projet de rapport « Perspectives et défis pour le secteur apicole de l'Union européenne » 13 amendements #StopNéonics. Cette action de contre-lobbying permet de rappeler la volonté des 1,2 million de citoyens qui ont signé la pétition de POLLINIS pour une interdiction totale des tueurs d'abeilles.
