Energy companies call for a more ambitious 2030 climate target for the EU

Today, in an open letter to European Environment and Climate Ministers, Ørsted and six other European energy companies support a carbon-neutral EU by 2050. These companies also ask the EU to increase the 2030 target for greenhouse-gas reduction to at least 55%.

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% to at least 55% reduction on 1990 levels.

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