EU support of some €34 million will help boost three innovative projects for clean transport in Italy and Germany for a total investment of €370 million. The funding comes from unspent funds from the NER 300 programme, reinvested to support innovative low-carbon projects under the Connecting Europe Facility Debt Instrument, an EU financial instrument managed by the European Investment Bank.
Alongside policies and regulation, citizens, communities and organisations in all sectors of our society and economy have a part to play in the transition to a climate-neutral Europe.
Today, the Commission presents a proposal to enshrine in legislation the EU's political commitment to be climate neutral by 2050, to protect the planet and our people. The European Climate Law sets the 2050 target and the direction of travel for all EU policy, and gives predictability for public authorities, businesses and citizens. At the same time, the Commission is launching a public consultation on the future European Climate Pact. Through this consultation the public will be involved in co-designing this instrument.
