Energy, Environment and Climate Change

We cover the latest EU policies in the fields of Energy, Environment and Climate Change. They protect the environment and seek to minimise risks to climate, human health and biodiversity.

Among the key EU initiatives in the field of Energy and Environment is the European Green Deal. It aims to make Europe the world's first climate-neutral continent, in part by developing cleaner sources of energy and green technologies. The European Green Deal set the blueprint for this transformational change. All 27 EU Member States are committed to turn the EU into the first climate neutral continent by 2050. To get there, they pledged to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. This will create new opportunities for innovation and investment and jobs, as well as: reduce emissions, create jobs and growth, address energy poverty, reduce external energy dependency, improve our health and well-being.
