BRUSSELS, 14 MAR – By 2030 Italy will have to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, transport, construction, waste and small industry by 43.7% compared to 2005 levels. This is the effect of the regulation on contributions measures to cut emissions – which confirms the proposal presented by the European Commission in 2021 – definitively approved today by the European Parliament pending the formal go-ahead from the EU Council. The regulation establishes binding annual reductions for greenhouse gas emissions not included in the ETS system, regulating around 60% of all EU emissions. With the FitFor55 climate package, the EU has proposed an increase in the overall reduction effort from 30 to 40%. The objective has not been modified either by the EU Council or by the Eurochamber. For Italy, the reduction constraint thus increases from 33% to 43.7%. (HANDLE).
