EU Climate Protection Act
The EU Climate Change Act is a legal framework for climate and energy policy at the EU level. It sets out the EU's long-term goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing energy efficiency and promoting the development of renewable energy sources. The law also includes provisions on energy taxation and emissions trading. The European Climate Act enshrines in law the goal set out in the European Green Deal to make the European economy and society climate neutral by 2050. The law also sets an interim target of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% from 1990 levels by 2030. The law aims to ensure that all EU policies contribute to achieving this target and that all sectors of the economy and society make their contribution.
