« The proposed changes are contrary to the spirit of the EIB`s draft proposal and the EU`s proposed overall goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050, » the letter says. 92% of Europeans agree that greenhouse gas emissions should be kept to a minimum, while the remaining emissions should be linked in order to make the EU economy climate neutral by 2050. On 28 November MEPs adopted a resolution calling on the EU to define climate neutrality as a long-term climate target for 2050 under the Paris Agreement and to raise the emissions reduction target to 55% by 2030. In a separate resolution, members declared the climate emergency in Europe. At a meeting of the Environment Council in Luxembourg, the 28 EU national delegates gave their blessing to a common position ahead of the annual UN climate change conference in December. The Council adopted conclusions on climate change after the U.S. government decided to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. In its conclusions, the Council deplores the decision of the United States Government to withdraw from the Paris Agreement and welcomes the strong commitments made by other countries. In March 2020, EU environment ministers adopted the EU`s long-term climate strategy, which will be submitted to the UNFCCC. For the UN COP23 in Bonn, the EU would focus on continuing the implementation of the Paris Agreement and establishing a balanced set of guidelines for all its provisions, to ensure the effectiveness of the global climate agreement. The fight against climate change and the transition to a climate-neutral society requires considerable investment, research and innovation, new methods of production and consumption, and changes in the way we work, use transport and live together.
By 2050, Europe wants to become the world`s first climate-neutral continent. The Economic and Financial Affairs Council adopted conclusions on the financial aspects of climate change in the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25). The EU and its Member States remain the leading provider of public climate finance. Their total contributions amounted to 21.7 billion euros in 2018, compared to 20.4 billion in 2017. This recent figure reflects the EU`s determination to increase its international contribution to the fight against climate change by 2020 and by 2025 to the target of $100 billion per year for industrialized countries. In December 2019, the European Council approved the goal of climate neutrality by 2050, in line with the commitments made in Paris. Sustaina Claus came to the climate march with her Christmas stoves to preach the message of sustainability. The environmentalist says that if we want to stop climate change and protect the planet`s resources, we must stop excessive consumption. Instead of buying mountains of gifts for your loved ones at Christmas, « you should give the gift from you. » The EU has adopted ambitious legislation in several policy areas to implement its international climate change commitments. EU countries have set binding emissions targets to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while transforming and renewing EU industry.
It promotes ambitious action on combating climate change in multilateral for a and in the context of bilateral cooperation with countries outside the EU. EU heads of state and government have agreed on the climate and energy policy framework for 2030.
