European climate law – achieving climate neutrality by 2050

10/01/2020 | Commission Européenne

About this initiative


This act writes into law the goal set out in the European Green Deal – for Europe’s economy and society to become climate-neutral by 2050.

This means achieving net zero emissions for EU countries as a whole, mainly by cutting emissions, investing in green technologies and protecting the natural environment.

The act will ensure that all EU policies contribute to this goal and that all sectors of the economy and society play their part.
