Climate Action

Climate change and you

Climate change concerns all of us, and everyone can take action for the climate.

Our planet is experiencing significant and accelerated climate change caused by greenhouse gases emitted by human activities.

The effects are being felt on all continents and are predicted to become more and more intense, with severe consequences for our economies and societies.

To stop climate change from getting worse, we must take action to cut greenhouse gas emissions significantly and adapt to the changes happening now and in the future to limit the damage.

Climate action has many benefits. It helps save energy, improve air quality, secure our energy supplies and create growth and jobs.

The EU is fighting climate change through ambitious policies at home and close cooperation with international partners.

All sectors of the economy and society have a part to play in building a better future. Everyone can contribute!
