EU Council Adopts Laws Aimed at Cutting Emissions from Transport, Vehicles, Energy Consumption

The European Council has revealed new laws and regulations that aim to help the EU achieve its climate goals. These laws include reducing energy consumption by 11.7% by 2030 compared to 2030 forecasts made in 2020 and mandating the deployment of more recharging and refueling stations for alternative fuels across Europe. The laws also focus on emissions in the maritime transport sector, with a requirement to reduce greenhouse gas intensity of fuels used by the shipping sector by 2% in 2025 and up to 80% by 2050. These laws are part of the European Commission’s “Fit for 55” plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. Once the laws are entered into the EU’s official journal, they will become effective.
