93 percent of the European population believe that climate change is a severe problem, and 92 percent support the targets set by the European Union for climate neutrality by 2050, reveals a new report from the European Commission.
The survey has shown that in all the member states of the European Union, the great majority of respondents support the EU’s measures introduced to prevent climate change, and they would also like the leaders of the EU and member states to set even more ambitious goals in that area while also improving Europe’s energy security.
In addition, the results of the survey also show that citizens are assuming a larger role in combating climate change. For the entire EU, an average of 93% of people have already personally taken and are taking specific steps to reduce climate change.
According to the Commission’s communication, the European Union is committed to ensuring faster progress in the field of climate protection. Among the greatest economic players, the European Union was the first one to introduce legally binding framework regulations in order to discharge its obligations assumed in the 2015 Paris Agreement. The Union’s long term goal is to make the EU’s economy completely climate neutral by 2050.
