The European Green Deal sets out how to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050
The European Commission has recently presented the European Green Deal – a roadmap for making the EU’s economy sustainable by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities across all policy areas and making the transition just and inclusive for all.
The European Green Deal provides a roadmap with actions to boost the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy and stop climate change, revert biodiversity loss and cut pollution. It outlines investments needed and financing tools available, and explains how to ensure a just and inclusive transition.
To set into legislation the political ambition of being the world’s first climate neutral continent by 2050, the Commission will present within 100 days the first “European Climate Law“. To reach the climate and environmental ambition, the Commission will also present, among others, the Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 and a new Forest Strategy post-2020.
EUSTAFOR and our members are looking forward to actively contribute to a comprehensive understanding of how European forests can help to accomplish the multiple ambitions of the European Green Deal.
