Today, the European Commission adopted a broad set of proposals to make the EU’s climate, energy, transport and taxation policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. Achieving these emission reductions in the next decade is crucial to Europe becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050 and making the European Green Deal a reality.
With today’s proposals, the Commission is presenting the legislative tools to deliver on the targetsagreed in the European Climate Law and fundamentally transform our economy and society for a fair, green and prosperous future.
