2020 climate and energy package
The 2020 package is a set of binding legislation, enacted to ensure that EU meets its climate and energy targets for the year 2020.
The package sets out the following key aims:
- 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions (compared to 1990 levels)
- 20% of EU energy generared from renewable energy sources
- 20% improvement in energy efficiency
- 21% decrease in emission in sectors covered by EU's Emissions Trading System
Achieving the goals of the 2020 package would contribute to fighting climate change and increase EU's energy security.
