It’s a great way to celebrate the anniversary of the Paris Agreement. The 27 countries of the European Union concluded on Friday, after a night of negotiations, an agreement to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by “at least 55%” by 2030 compared to 1990 level, against a previous target of 40%, announced several European officials.

Heads of State and Government have adopted “an ambitious proposal for a new climate goal”, welcomed on Twitter the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.

The agreement was blocked for long hours by Poland, anxious to obtain guarantees on the financial aid it would obtain in exchange for the greening of its economy.
