Consultation Response – Climate Law Roadmap – April 2020

On the 16th of April, Bellona Europa submitted its response to the European Commission’s European Climate Law Roadmap.

Bellona Europa welcomes the European Commission’s Roadmap for the first “European Climate Law”, set to enshrine the 2050 climate neutrality target into law and increase the EU’s intermediate target for 2030.

The proposed “Climate Law”, if done right, has the potential to deliver on the European promise to become a “Global Leader” on tackling climate change. For this to occur, the Law needs to ensure that all EU policies actively contribute to and are in line with the aims of the Paris Agreement. Europe must lead by example and take its part of historical responsibility to ensure that the targets are met with real emissions reductions and removals in EU territory.
