Parties to the Paris Agreement were invited to communicate, by 2020, their mid-century, long-term low GHG emission development strategies. The Energy Governance Union Regulation also provides that the Commission adopts a proposal for a Union long-term strategy for greenhouse gas emissions reduction in accordance with the Paris Agreement which includes a scenario on achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions within the Union by 2050 and negative emissions thereafter.

ENVI was working on a draft motion for resolution which was adopted in ENVI on 20 February. The hearing and resolution launch the EP debate on the Commission Communication, the proposed pathways as well as the necessary steps to be taken on the Union and national levels in the coming months.
