  • European Green Deal Climate change and environmental degradation are an existential threat to Europe and the world. To overcome these challenges, the European Green Deal will transform the EU into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, ensuring no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050, economic growth decoupled from resource use& no person and no place left behind.
  • Circular economy action plan The new action plan announces initiatives along the entire life cycle of products. It targets how products are designed, promotes circular economy processes, encourages sustainable consumption, and aims to ensure that waste is prevented and the resources used are kept in the EU economy for as long as possible.
  • Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) Evaluate, report, and improve the environmental performance of your organisation
  • Building a sustainable Europe (EEA) Sustainability is about meeting the world’s needs of today and tomorrow by creating systems that allow us to live well and within the limits of our planet. Building a sustainable Europe isn’t an easy task. Without a rapid and fundamental transformation of Europe's production and consumption systems, it will not be possible.


  • 2030 climate & energy framework: Greenhouse gas emissions: from 40% to at least 55% reduction (compared to 1990 levels) • Renewable energy: from 32% to 42.5% share • Energy efficiency target for final energy consumption: from 32.5% to 36% • Energy efficiency target for primary energy consumption: 39%
  • 2050 long-term strategy The EU aims to be climate-neutral by 2050 – an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. This objective is at the heart of the European Green Deal and in line with the EU’s commitment to global climate action under the Paris Agreement.
