MEPs want stricter rules for Member States’ greenhouse gas emissions

On the 8th of June 2022, the European Parliament adopted its position on the effort sharing regulation which sets binding annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions for EU Member States and currently regulates roughly 60 % of EU emissions.

The Commission proposed to increase the mandatory GHG reduction 2030-target at EU level from 30 % to 40 %. Now, for the first time, all EU Member States must reduce greenhouse gas emission with targets ranging between 10-50 %.
