The EU is a global leader in climate action. Last December the European Council set the future direction of the Union: the EU will be climate-neutral by 2050. Environment and climate ministers met on 5 March, to exchange views on the European Green Deal and to work on the concrete steps needed to make net zero emissions in the EU a reality. Ministers discussed priority areas, encouraged a more resource efficient economy, and voiced out support for a just transition to climate neutrality.
