NO.10 Europe to become the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050
 

On December 11, the European Commission announced a new deal, the European Green Deal, in Brussels, to address the climate change. It says that Europe strives to become the world’s first climate- neutral continent by 2050, aiming to realize the sustainable economic development of the EU by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities in the policy field, and puts forward to maximize resource utilization by taking measures including turning to clean energy and circular economy, preventing climate change, restoring biodiversity and reducing pollution, etc. These measures cover almost all areas of the economy, especially transportation, energy, agriculture, construction, steel, cement, ICT, textile and chemical industries.

Reason for listing:

Europe has been ambitious in fighting climate change. In 2019, "climate emergency" was selected as the Oxford Word of the Year, and the UN Climate Change Conference held in Madrid once again called on all countries to make practical actions. This powerful new deal of the European Commission is a positive response to the current global climate issue, and it also projects Europe the image of "climate-neutral" global leader by regarding transformation as an opportunity.
