Climate and sustainability goals are the two new pillars of the European Union and they have become the driving force behind almost every decision taken by the new European Commission so far. Shortly after taking the office in December 2019, the new executive presented their impressive master plan – the European Green Deal. The Commission is seeking not only to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, but is also introducing numerous environmental, energy, and financial proposals in order to make Europe more sustainable in general.
