How could the EU farming sector could look in a net-zero world? What roles would it play and what is needed to make the transition by mid-century?
“Net-zero agriculture in 2050: how to get there?” new report by the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) shows that it’s feasible and highlights actions and policies needed to reach that point.
As Europe is currently designing its largest ever research and innovation funding programme, Horizon Europe, this report reveals that Europe’s current climate-related R&I investments are unfit to meet the net-zero challenge.
A sustainable future for the European cement and concrete industry – Technology assessment for full decarbonisation of the industry by 2050
The new report investigates the practices and technologies that can be implemented to significantly reduce CO2 emissions from the cement and concrete sector in Europe by 2050.
Italy could boost its economy and create 19,225 net additional jobs in 2030 through the transition from a mobility system fuelled with imported oil and diesel to one that is driven by domestically produced renewable energy
This is the overall conclusion of “Net-Zero by 2050: From Whether to How”, a new report released today by the ECF and Climact
Trucking sector at a crossroads between rising emissions and a more sustainable and competitive future
