As part of the European Green Deal, the EU has set itself a binding target of achieving climate neutrality by 2050. This requires current greenhouse gas emission levels to drop substantially in the next decades. In order to achieve this, the EU is currently working on the revision of its climate, energy and transport-related legislation under the so-called 'Fit for 55 package' in order to align current laws with the 2030 and 2050 ambitions. 'Fit for 55' refers to the at least 55% emission reduction target which the EU has set for 2030. The package includes a wide range of new and amended EU law instrument with a common goal: meeting the 55% target by 2030.
