TEAM GREEN NEVER SLEEPS
You already know that we are #teamgreen always and forever. So, we just wanted to take a second to remind you about all of the “green” topics we covered these last few months.
Let’s start this “go green” journey.
We just had to mark the big “Delivering of the European Green Deal” occasion on our feed. European Commission, on 14 July, adopted a set of proposals to make the EU’s climate, energy, transport and taxation policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emission by at least 55% by 2030 (compared to 1990 levels).
Achieving these emission reductions in the next decade is crucial to Europe becoming the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050 and making the European Green Deal a reality.
To achieve the goals set by the European Green Deal, the Commission has pledged to mobilise at least €1 trillion in sustainable investments over the next decade.
- 30% of the EU’s multiannual budget (2021-2028) and the EU’s unique NextGenerationEU (NGEU) instrument to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, has been allocated for green investments
- EU countries must devote at least 37% of the financing they receive under the €672.5 billion Recovery and Resilience Facility to investments and reforms that support climate objectives
- All investments and reforms to be financed in this way must do no significant harm to the EU's environmental objectives
The European Green Deal will improve the well-being and health of citizens and future generations by providing:
- fresh air, clean water, healthy soil and biodiversity
- renovated, energy efficient buildings
- healthy and affordable food
- more public transport
- cleaner energy and cutting-edge clean technological innovation
- longer lasting products that can be repaired, recycled and re-used
- future-proof jobs and skills training for the transition
- globally competitive and resilient industry
Furthermore, we marked World Nature Conservation Day. The intention was that everyone takes a second and think about the nature. Nature Conservation Days acknowledges that a healthy environment is the foundation for a stable and healthy society. Earth's natural resources include air, minerals, plants, soil, water, and wildlife.
Also, we mentioned the #WorldCarFreeDay. In addition to the European Green Deal EU made a campaign called European Mobility Week.
The goals were:
- raising awareness on sustainable mobility
- promoting behavioural change
- supporting clean transport solutions
So, on the last day of the Mobility Week, we marked the Car Free Day.
The Commision also encourages the strengthening of the market for zero and low-emission vehicles. In particular, it seeks to provide citizens with the necessary infrastructure to charge these vehicles for short and long journeys.
We are so happy to hear that European Union is doing everything they can to reach those goals from the Green Deal.
How about you? Are you #teamgreen?
