New Climate Rules Finalised

On 20th June the European Union finalised a new set of climate rules after months of talks. These new rules are set to target a total energy saving of 32.5% along with an uplift in the share of renewable energy to 32% by 2030.

The overall goal is to lower greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% below the 1990 levels by 2030 in line with the Paris Agreement. National Governments will now draft up their own plans implementing the changes necessary to reach this goal.

Whilst these new rules have been implemented, there are still environmental groups and Green group lawmakers warning that the agreement is still falling short of the Paris Agreement - the aim of which is to keep global warming below 2 degrees.
