EU opens consultation regarding decarbonisation strategy

It aims to help inform what type of transformations are required and how they should be carried out

By Jonny Bairstow

The EU has launched a consultation to seek views regarding the development of its long-term emissions reduction strategy.

It aims to gather opinions, information and knowledge from interested parties such as citizens, businesses, professional organisations, academic groups, governments and councils to work out the best technological and socioeconomic pathways that should be explored as options.

The consultation aims to help inform what type of transformations are required and the level of ambition to which they should be carried out.

The EU will also look at how potential techniques to decarbonise will interact with other measures, the societal and economic challenges and opportunities involved, the changing role of the consumer and how to source the necessary investment.

Responses to the consultation can be submitted in any official EU language.
