Under the Green Deal, by 2030 55% of CO2 emissions in Europe must be reduced compared to 1990. Europe will thus become the first climate-neutral continent (net CO2 emissions equal to zero) by the second half of 2050. Achieving these objectives will require a significant contribution by businesses and public administrations. Total investments in Italy are expected to exceed 60 billion euros, and in Spain 50 billion euros, in the period 2022-2030.
