On 4 March 2020, the European Commission presented the European Climate Law. As one of the measures taken as part of the European Green Deal, the European Climate Law is a legislative proposal that sets the target of the European Union becoming climate neutral by 2050. ‘Climate neutrality’, often used interchangeably with the term ‘carbon neutrality’, refers to balancing out greenhouse gas emissions with actions that remove these emissions. In particular, the European Climate Law establishes the legislative pathway necessary for achieving this target. This pathway consists of procedures “to keep track of progress and adjust [] actions accordingly.” It includes the following measures: by 2021, the European Commission aims to review, and revise where adequate, the existing 2030 target for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; by 2023, the Commission will carry out assessments every five years of the progress Member States have made towards achieving the climate objective, and make necessary recommendations which Member States are obliged to take into account; EU institutions and Members States are required to expand their existing climate change measures, to further strengthen measures protecting against the adverse effects of climate change. The Climate Law therefore legally enshrines the responsibility to take climate action in the face of climate change and its consequences. It inscribes itself in the EU’s aim to become the first climate neutral bloc in the world by the middle of the century. This law has been a long-awaited action related to what can be performed collectively in the name of saving the planet and dealing with the effects of climate change. The example set by the EU can be a potential example for other regions all over the world. Speaking on the European Climate Law, Baran Bozoglu, head of the Ankara-based Climate Change Policy and Research Association, has said that the European Climate Law is an important example for other continents. “The EU is defined as the third region with the highest greenhouse gas emissions globally after China and the U.S. Therefore, the steps to be taken would be an important development for reducing greenhouse gas emissions around the world.” References: Committing to climate-neutrality by 2050: Commission proposes European Climate Law and consults on the European Climate Pact, [ONLINE], Available at Accessed 26 August 2020 EU climate action and the European Green Deal, [ONLINE], Available at Accessed 26 August 2020 European Climate Law, European Parliament, Think Tank, [ONLINE], Available at Accessed 26 August 2020 European Climate Law: Europe’s first legally binding proposal, [ONLINE], Available at Accessed 26 August 2020 Written by Maria Papamargariti She is a Greek and English Philologist as well as a writer in the field of children’s literature.

2020年3月4日,欧盟委员会提出了《欧洲气候法》。 作为欧洲绿色协议的一部分,《欧洲气候法》是一项立法提案,其目标是到2050年使欧盟成为气候中立国家。“气候中性”通常与“碳中性”互换使用,指的是通过消除温室气体排放的行动来平衡这些排放。特别是,《欧洲气候法》确立了实现这一目标所需的立法途径。这条路径由跟踪进度并相应地调整[]行动的程序组成。它包括以下措施: 到2021年,欧盟委员会的目标是审查并在适当时修订现有的2030年温室气体减排目标; 到2023年,委员会将每五年评估一次成员国在实现气候目标方面取得的进展,并提出成员国有义务考虑的必要建议; 欧盟各机构和成员国必须扩大其现有的气候变化措施,进一步加强防止气候变化不利影响的措施。 因此,《气候法》从法律上规定了在面对气候变化及其后果时采取气候行动的责任。欧盟的目标是在本世纪中叶成为世界上第一个气候中立集团。这项法律是一项期待已久的行动,涉及以拯救地球和应对气候变化影响的名义可以集体采取的行动。欧盟树立的榜样可以成为全世界其他地区的潜在榜样。 在谈到《欧洲气候法》时,总部位于安卡拉的气候变化政策和研究协会负责人巴兰·博佐格鲁曾表示,《欧洲气候法》是其他大陆的一个重要榜样。 欧盟被定义为继中国和美国之后全球温室气体排放量第三高的地区,因此,将采取的措施将是减少全球温室气体排放的重要进展。 参考文献: 承诺到2050年实现气候中立:欧盟委员会提出欧洲气候法并就《欧洲气候公约》提供咨询,[在线],可在www.example.com上查阅,2020年8月26日访问 欧盟气候行动和欧洲绿色协议,[在线],可访问,访问年8月26日 《欧洲气候法》,欧洲议会,智库,[在线],可在www.example.com查阅参考文献=EPRS_BRI(2020)649385访问日期:2020年8月26日 欧洲气候法:欧洲第一个具有法律约束力的提案,[在线],可在www.example.com获取,2020年8月26日访问 编剧:玛丽亚·帕帕玛格丽蒂 她是一位希腊和英国的语言学家,也是一位儿童文学领域的作家。 编辑:塞西尔·马耶尔
