The EU is on track to meet its 2030 emission targets.

This is according to a recent energy policy review by the International Energy Agency (IEA), which has noted a 23% decline in greenhouse emissions from the EU in 2019 compared to 1990.

The review highlights that despite many EU members enacting policies to phase out coal use and production, greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector are still on the rise. This is in addition to energy usage still being fossil-fuel intensive.
