The European Commission is preparing a long-term strategy for greenhouse gas emissions reduction in anticipation of the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP24), taking place in Katowice in December 2019. The strategy is being developed in the context of the full framework of existing EU policies and strategies, but it must also align with international commitments from the Paris Agreement. The Commission is consulting with various stakeholders to discuss the direction and the focus of the Strategy, which could aim Europe for a transition towards carbon neutrality.
On the 17th of July, the European Commission published the Open Public Consultation, which will be available until 9 October 2018. Results of the public consultation will be used by the European Commission to prepare the long-term strategy for greenhouse gas emissions. The consultation is available in all official languages of the EU. All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation.
