Statement by the European Parliament President David Sassoli
“With the EU Green Deal, the EU wants to be climate neutral by 2050 and to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030. The European Climate Law made these commitments binding, and today the European Parliament welcomes the adoption of the largest ever package of climate, energy and transport legislation to align our laws with these new objectives.
“Parliament stands ready to work on the proposals as soon as possible. The EU has proved that it is possible to cut emissions while growing and creating jobs. Let's continue on this path and ensure that no one is left behind.”
