The European Green Deal, announced on 11 December 2019, seeks to address the effects of climate change and environmental degradation. The goal is to achieve zero clean greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, to dissociate economic growth from the use of resources and non-marginalization individuals and regions in the European Union. In this context, a series of proposals were adopted by the European Commission to achieve the goal of reducing clean greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, in comparison to 1990 levels, through polices such as the EU climate, energy, transport and taxation policies. This Agreement will ensure the prosperity and health of present and future generations by providing clean air, water, healthy soil and biodiversity, by renovating and building energy-efficient buildings, by providing healthy and affordable food, increasing public transport use, clean energy and technological innovation, making more durable and reusable products and recycling them, creating future sustainable jobs and training people in areas that will allow this transition, but also alongside the presence of a globalized competitive and resilient industry.
