EU heads of government have this morning reached an agreement for a new 2030 EU target to cut carbon emissions by at least 55%.

Colin Roche, climate justice coordinator for Friends of the Earth Europe had this to say:

The world is on track to global warming in excess of 3˚C, yet the commitments made by political leaders fall far short of what is needed to protect vulnerable and poor people across the world. But it doesn't have to be this way.


Friends of the Earth Europe is working to create the much-needed, fair and urgent transition to a fossil fuel free Europe by 2030. This means dismantling the fossil fuel system and creating the just, clean energy future that people want and need.
