EU Unveils 2030 Climate Goals

European Commission wants 40 percent reduction of carbon emissions from 1990 levels

|

The European Commission has outlined its plans for climate and energy policy until 2030.

The Commissioners want a binding target to reduce carbon emissions by 40% from 1990 levels.

Renewables will need to provide 27% of EU energy by 2030, but while the target will be binding at EU level there will be no mandatory targets for member states.
