2030 climate & energy framework

The 2030 climate and energy framework includes EU-wide targets and policy objectives for the period from 2021 to 2030.

Greenhouse gas emissions - raising the ambition

In July 2021, the European Commission adopted a set of proposals to make the EU's climate, energy, transport and taxation policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels.

This will enable the EU to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.

2030 climate and energy framework - key targets

  • Greenhouse gas emissions: from 40% to at least 55% reduction (compared to 1990 levels)
  • Renewable energy: from 32% to 42.5% share
  • Energy efficiencytarget for final energy consumption: from 32.5% to 36%
  • Energy efficiency target for primary energy consumption: 39%

Governance system

Under the Regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action, the EU has adopted integrated rules to ensure planning, monitoring and reporting of progress towards its 2030 climate and energy targets and its international commitments under the Paris Agreement.

Based on the better regulation principles, the governance process involves consultations with citizens and stakeholders.


The Commission proposed the 55% target in its 2030 Climate Target Plan in September 2020.
