The 🇪🇺 will become climate neutral by 2050.
But to get there, we need to set climate targets for 2⃣0⃣4⃣0⃣
What do YOU think the EU's climate ambition should be?
Answer our survey: https://europa.eu/!Wn7Fpq
Today we present a pioneering proposal to help us get to net zero emissions.
The first ever 🇪🇺-wide framework to reliably certify high-quality carbon removals.
To boost innovative natural and industrial carbon removal solutions.
Here's how 👇
Europe is burning as #wildfires spread across France, Greece, Portugal and Spain.
That’s because 2021 was the second worst wildfire season on record, with fires mapped in 22 EU countries.
Today is #EarthDay🌍 and we have a big announcement… 📣the @EU_Commission joins the #EUClimatePact🎉
The pledge is to become climate neutral by 2030💚 How? By reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
