Press Releases

The European Commission will likely launch on Thursday 17 September a proposal to increase the EU's 2030 climate target to -55% emission reductions and removals of greenhouse gases, as compared to 1990 levels. This is a substantial increase from the current at least -40% target, though the two cannot be fully compared as the Commission in its proposal is expected to change the sectors covered by this target.

The current 2030 climate target does not cover emissions from all sectors. Emissions from international shipping, and emissions and removals from land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) are not included.

By contrast, the Commission will be proposing to include these sectors in the new -55% target.

This is a substantial change, read why:
