Climate strategy / Climate goals

VTG backs the European Green Deal

Paying due attention to environmental and sustainability considerations is an expression of the far-reaching transition that is reshaping our society. The EU Commission has therefore announced a new growth strategy designed to facilitate the transition to a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy. The content of this strategy includes:

  • Achieving zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050
  • Decoupling economic growth from the use of resources
  • Leaving no person and no place behind.

 

This European Green Deal is the roadmap to a sustainable economy in the European Union. VTG explicitly supports these goals.

 

Limiting average global warming to well below two degrees Celsius

VTG is a member of “Foundation 2° – German Entrepreneurs for Climate Change Mitigation”. The foundation’s overriding goal is clearly enshrined in its name: to limit average global warming to well below two degrees Celsius. Members unite in calling on politicians to establish effective market-based conditions to mitigate climate change and to support the problem-solving capabilities of German companies.
