The European Union must reduce CO2 emissions a lot further than the European Commission intends, says the European Parliament.


It wants to lay down in the new climate law that Europe must emit 60 percent less greenhouse gas by 2030.

The European Commission has proposed to include a 55 percent reduction from 1990 in climate law.

That target is already more ambitious than the initial 40 percent, but the parliament does not go far enough.

The tightened target for 2030 is necessary to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, as agreed, according to parliament.
