Going climate-neutral by 2050
A strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate-neutral EU economy
In November 2018, the European Commission presented a long-term strategic vision to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, showing how Europe can lead the way to climate neutrality – an economy with net-zero GHG emissions. The strategy explores how this can be achieved by looking at all the key economic sectors, including energy, transport, industry and agriculture. A portfolio of options was explored to underline that it is possible to move to net-zero GHG emissions by 2050, based on existing – though in some cases emerging – technological solutions, empowering citizens and aligning action in... key areas such as industrial policy, finance or research, while ensuring social fairness for a just transition.
