My world. My action. Our planet.
The European Climate Pact is a movement of people united around a common cause, each taking steps to build a more sustainable Europe for us all. Launched by the European Commission, the Climate Pact is part of the European Green Deal and is helping the EU to meet its goal to be the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050.
The ambition to make Europe the first climate neutral continent by 2050 will only be successful if everyone – from individuals to organisations, to local and national governments – takes action.
The European Commission, with its 32,000 staff and offices in each EU country, is leading by example and marking Earth Day 2022 with a Climate Pact pledge to become climate neutral by 2030. This involves achieving ambitious but realistic goals, including making buildings more energy efficient, being smarter about work-related travel and making IT infrastructure greener.
We all know that we need to take climate action to reduce our carbon footprint and reach climate neutrality. People expect the authorities to pass laws to make it happen, but they are also keen to influence business practices through their own actions.
Making a difference in the fight against climate change can only be achieved if we all take steps to decarbonise our lifestyles. But what does that mean in practice and what kind of impact does it make?
How can we tackle the climate crisis by changing the way we travel, eat and use energy? This question was at the heart of hundreds of Peer Parliament debates recently held across Europe.
