Promoting climate issues during Finland’s Presidency
During its Presidency of the Council of the EU, Finland is stressing the need for the EU to raise its profile as a global leader in climate action.
The EU’s long-term climate strategy aims for a carbon-neutral Europe by 2050. Finland’s objective is to reach agreement among the member states on the strategy at the December European Council at the latest.
Climate change requires changes in all areas of life. This is why, during Finland’s Presidency, climate change mitigation will be addressed in almost all Council configurations, at both ministerial and working group level.
