Fit for 55

With the Paris Climate Agreement (Paris Agreement), a contract was concluded between the European member states on December 12, 2015, with the preceding three goals:

Limiting the temperature increase to 1.5°C to reduce the impact of climate change
Increase adaptive capacity to adverse effects of climate change.
Compatibility of financial resources with the set goals and climate-resilient development.

In order to achieve the targets from the agreement, REDI was amended to REDII, which stipulates, among other things, that emissions are to be reduced by 40% by the year of 2030 compared to 1990 levels. The German government has gone one step further and set itself the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 55% compared to 1990 as part of the Federal Climate Protection Act. In Germany, this is essentially due to the 37/38. BImSchV regulated.
