The EU-manager presents climate change plan: This is Europe's lunar landing

The ambition is to mobilise 100 billion euros to a overgangspulje, says Ursula von der Leyen.

100 billion must be mobilised, so that Europe can show the way in the green transition, where the overall goal is climate neutrality by 2050.

the EU Commission's president, Ursula von der Leyen, presents the Wednesday sketch for the great climate and an environmental agreement for the EU - The European Green new Deal - as governments across Europe have been waiting for.

It has, because it has important implications for how one should adapt in the coming years to achieve the goal of climate neutrality, which means that there is a balance between removals and emissions of CO2.

Ursula von der Leyen recognizes that you have a roadmap, but it is not described in any detail.

- We don't have all the answers. But this is Europe's "man on the moon moment" (man on the moon-moment, ed.), says von der Leyen, at a brief press conference before she presents the plan in the EU Parliament.

the President of the commission stresses that a successful implementation will require that there is a way to help the countries that are most challenged in achieving the targets.

It is mainly countries in Eastern europe. Several of them have so far blocked the goal of climate neutrality, when the heads of state and government has been gathered in the course of the past year.

- This deal is never going to work, if it does not work for all, says von der Leyen.

It is the ambition, says von der Leyen, to mobilize the 100 billion euro to a overgangspulje, which should help all member states to achieve the objectives.

There is the EU summit on Thursday and Friday in Brussels. Here heads of state and government once again take a stand to the 2050 target.

The European Green new Deal is going to permeate all economic sectors such as transport, energy, agriculture, buildings, and industries such as steel, cement, textiles and chemicals.
