The EU is spearheading the fight against climate change and the drive to net zero. Several key initiatives have been launched each with their own respective goals and targets, working together to combat climate change. Two of these key EU initiatives include the EU Green Deal, and the Fit for 55 initiative. Both of these initiatives have the aim of helping the EU reach 55% reduction in emissions by 2030 and net zero by 2050.
