The European Commission presented its plans to reduce EU greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 (compared to 1990 levels). The aim is to increase the ambition and set the pathway for the EU to reach climate neutrality by 2050.
The announcement includes an amendment to the proposed European Climate Law, to include the 2030 emissions reduction target. As next step, the European Parliament and Council of the EU are invited to confirm this 55% target under the Paris Agreement. The European Commission also announced the legislative proposals that will be presented by June 2021. These will be reviewed and proposals issued. For more information, please click here.
