December 2020 marks the first anniversary of European Commission President Von der Leyen’s announcement of the European Green Deal – with the centrepiece ambition to make Europe a carbon-neutral continent by 2050.
The initial climate action initiatives include the European Climate Law to enshrine the 2050 climate-neutrality objective into EU law, the European Climate Pact to engage citizens and all parts of society in climate action, and the 2030 Climate Target Plan to further reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030.
In early 2021, the Commission will adopt a new, more ambitious EU strategy on adaptation to climate change.
Businesses and consumers will be central actors in achieving the EU ambition, and the way we produce and consume our food and drink will be at the heart of fighting climate change and achieving the transition to a climate-neutral society.
