Green Deal Law To Make EU’s ‘Tectonic’ Energy Shift Irreversible – Bloomberg

Europe wants to make its goal of becoming the first climate-neutral continent irreversible under a new law that is to be unveiled next month, offering investors the certainty they ask for before backing unprecedented levels of investment.

The climate law will require all corners of the economy to take action and give the institutions coordinating the shift the legal authority to act when the promises to deliver are broken, according to Frans Timmermans, executive vice-president of the commission.

“This is an exercise in disciplining this transformational age,” Timmermans told a conference in Brussels on Tuesday. “Transforming a society that is entirely based on carbon to a society that no longer needs carbon as a fundamental basis for its functioning is of a tectonic nature.”
