EU climate strategy for 2050
Environment ministers held a policy debate on the EU’s long-term strategic vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy, based on different scenarios for achieving long-term greenhouse gas emission reductions by 2050 in line with the Paris Agreement.

Today we discussed the importance of developing together a long-term strategy for greenhouse gas emission reductions for the EU. As we look towards 2050, we know that we need to provide the necessary incentives for this transformation, and we will have to make sure that we take into account regional specificities and different socio-economic circumstances. Further reducing our greenhouse gas emissions will be challenging, but it also holds great opportunities for our economies and citizens.
