The Council (country) and the European Parliament reached an interim political agreement on Wednesday, which was established as a law Achieve a climate-neutral European Union (EU) goal by 2050 The common goal of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared with 1990.

The committee will have to Propose a mid-term climate goal for 2040, If so, no later than six months after the first full balance According to the “Paris Agreement”. At the same time, it will release the EU’s indicative greenhouse gas budget and its basic methods for the period 2030-2050.
that budget Defined as “the indicative total of the total net greenhouse gas emissions expected to be emitted during the period (expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent and providing separate information on emissions and removals) without prejudice to Paris’ “Promise of.”
Negotiators agreeThe committee will work with economic sectors that choose to develop a roadmap Indicative volunteers to achieve ITU’s climate neutral goal by 2050.
