EU at COP28 Climate Change Conference
” The legislation to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 is now in place, and we are even on track to overshoot this ambition.
This is an important sign to Europe and to our global partners that the green transition is possible, and that Europe is delivering on its promises. ”
Ursula von der Leyen,
President of the European Commission
EU climate action
The European Green Deal set out a new growth strategy for Europe. It aims to transform the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern and competitive economy with zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The latest EU climate and energy legislation, known as the ‘Fit for 55’ package, is expected to reduce EU net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. Europe is delivering on its promises made to citizens and international partners to lead the way on climate action and shape the green transition for the benefit of citizens and industries.
Globally, the EU supports the green transformation, investing in both mitigation and climate resilience through its Global Gateway strategy. It also supports clean energy as a way of achieving the Sustainable development goals and commitments of the Paris Agreement. A Team Europe approach, it promotes green technology exchanges and reinforces energy security, offering sustainable and trusted connections and solutions across the world.
