Climate deal on 2030 emission cuts makes EU 2050 targets credible - Michel

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A deal reached by European Union leaders in the early hours of Friday to cut EU net greenhouse gas emissions at least 55% by 2030 makes credible the more ambitious target of having zero net emissions by 2050, the head of the European Council said.

A reduction of 55% by 2030 “means that our 2050 commitment is credible,” Charles Michel told a news conference on Friday, adding that reaching that deal “wasn’t easy” and required a marathon meeting of EU leaders.
