Under the European Green Deal and the European Climate Law, the EU has committed to becoming climate neutral by 2050. That means reducing greenhouse gas emissions sharply in the coming decades. As an intermediate step towards climate neutrality, the EU has raised its ambition for 2030: CO2 emissions must be reduced by at least 55% compared to 1990 by that year. Source: European Council.
