Climate Strategy 2050
- Reaching net zero by 2050;
- By 2030, 50% GHG emissions reduction compared to 1990 levels. 40% are to be reduced domestically, 10% abroad; and
- By 2050, reduce domestic emissions by 90% compared to 1990 levels. The remaining 10% are to be compensated.
The Strategy prioritises the energy sector. Compared to 1990 levels, emissions must be reduced by 50% by 2030, and completely by 2050.
For the compensation of remaining emissions, the Strategy mentions carbon sinks such as forests and moors. It further announces monitoring the development of negative emissions technologies.
Lastly, the Strategy touches on emissions abroad which are to be reduced as well.
