S&D vice-president responsible for the European Green Deal, Miriam Dalli, stated:

“If the EU is serious about its actions, the proposed Climate Law cannot be a symbolic exercise. Intermediate targets are a must if the EU is to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The ambition must be clear because the industry itself needs to know what it should be preparing for.

“It is evident that for the EU to meet its 2050 target, a reduction target of at least 55% for 2030 and an intermediate target for 2040, must be set. This would avoid last-minute rushes for the industries to adapt. It is equally important to have a binding Climate Law before the COP26 Summit later this year, giving the EU credence when advocating for climate change action.”
