Are you ready for 55?


“We are at a crucial moment in the global response to the climate and biodiversity crisis, and we are the last generation that can still make an impact. This decade will be decisive - it remains to be seen whether we have fulfilled our commitments under the Paris Agreement to ensure the health, well-being and well-being of all. The EU has set an example by setting ambitious targets to cut net emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels and to be the first climate neutral continent by 2050. These targets are no longer just aspirations or ambitions, but commitments set out in the first European Climate Law that open up new opportunities for innovation, investment and jobs ”.

"The Ready for 55 package is a set of interrelated conclusions, all of which serve the same purpose of ensuring a fair and competitive ecological transition by 2030.

and in the following years. Where possible, the level of ambition laid down in existing legislation is increased and new proposals are introduced as necessary. In essence, the package strengthens the eight existing pieces of legislation and introduces five new initiatives covering a range of policy areas and economic sectors: climate, energy and fuel, transport, buildings, land use and forestry. "





“The legislative proposals are supported by an analysis carried out in the impact assessment which takes into account the interconnection across the package. This analysis shows that over-reliance on enhanced regulatory policies would result in unnecessarily high economic burdens, while GHG levying alone would fail to address persistent market failures and non-market barriers. The chosen combination of measures from different policy areas is therefore the product of a careful balancing of the setting of fees, objectives, standards and support measures. '
