The European Commission is proposing the first ever European Climate Law, but what will this mean practically for the fight to achieve climate neutrality by 2050? Join us at the Chamber for a discussion around one of the top priorities of the European Commission. 

The primary objectives of this law is to ensure that policies put forward by the Commission help achieve an overall reduction in carbon emissions in a way that is fair and cost-efficient. It will create a system for monitoring progress towards this goal and will ensure that any gains cannot be reversed. 

Featuring primarily in this proposal is a legally binding target to emit net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This will be monitored and the Commission will be empowered to recommend certain actions to member states in order to help progress towards climate neutrality. Member states will also be required to develop strategies to enable stronger resilience to the effects of climate change.

Niels Schuster is a member of the DG Clima team which is responsible for this law and its relation to member states. We look forward to an informative discussion around this proposal.
