The Commission adopted on 11 December 2019 the “European Green Deal”. The Green Deal sets the overall ambition of transforming the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, competitive economy, where there are no net-emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) in 2050, a decoupling of economic growth from resource use and a preservation of natural capital. Prior to the Green Deal, the

Commission analysed possible pathways to a climate-neutral economy as part of the work carried out in the context of the Commission’s proposal for a Long-Term Climate Strategy in line with the Paris Agreement. The analysis demonstrates the needs for substantive efforts in all parts of the economy, also for transport.
