A Climate Law and a Climate Pact for a climate-neutral Europe. College proposes first-ever European

Europe is set to become the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050, thanks to the European Green Deal. Yesterday, the Commission took a big step in this direction by unveiling its proposal for the first-ever European Climate Law. At the same time, it launched a public consultation on the European Climate Pact to co-design how the Pact can boost civil society’s involvement in climate action.
"We are acting today to make the EU the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050," said President von der Leyen. "The Climate Law is the legal translation of our political commitment and sets us irreversibly on the path to a more sustainable future. It is the heart of the European Green Deal." Indeed, the Climate Law sets into legislation the EU's political commitment to be climate-neutral by 2050; it also sets the direction of travel for all EU policy, while giving predictability for public authorities, businesses and citizens.
With this proposal, the Commission aims to write into law the goal of getting to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, binding EU institutions and national governments to take the necessary steps to meet this goal, while making sure that the path to get there is fair for all.
