The European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the European Commission`s public consultation on the 2040 climate targets.
We support a binding EU-wide climate target for 2040 to address the more and more frequent impact of the climate, energy and water crisis.
In order to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, the European Union should adopt a comprehensive and ambitious set of climate and energy targets. The synergy between energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and GHG emissions targets is crucial to strengthen EU’s climate resilience and accelerate the energy transition. It is becoming more and more evident that such set of three targets is essential to reduce our dependence on external resources.
