Energy companies call for more ambitious EU 2030 climate target

28 Nov, 2019

In an open letter to European Environment and Climate Ministers, Statkraft and six other European energy companies support a carbon-neutral EU by 2050 and ask the EU to increase the 2030 target for greenhouse gas reduction to at least 55 per cent.

It is crucial that the EU speeds up the implementation of green energy solutions now to achieve carbon neutrality in 2050. Therefore, the seven energy companies call for the EU to increase its greenhouse-gas reduction target for 2030 from 40 per cent to at least 55 per cent reduction on 1990 levels.

The seven energy companies behind the letter are: EDP, Enel, Iberdrola, SSE, Statkraft, Verbund, and Ørsted.
