CEE industry and employer associations together for maintaining economic competitiveness in accepting 2030 climate target

CEE industry and employer associations call on EU leaders to insist that climate action comes with effective safeguards and maintaining economic competitiveness. 

At their upcoming meeting of the European Council (EUCO) on 10-11. December 2020, the Heads of State and Government will make a key decision on the EU’s 2030 climate target. Following a proposal by the European Commission, the 2030 climate target shall be increased from currently -40% greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to -55% (in order to meet the climate neutrality objective by 2050). This comes while Europe is facing unprecedented challenges of the global merit and in context of the COVID -19 crisis.
