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.
