Spain has declared a climate emergency and intends to write legislation to be sent to parliament in the next 100 days.
- The European Union Parliament declared a climate emergency in November and Spain is following their lead by setting a goal of carbon neutrality by 2050
- Spain is just one of more than two dozen countries to declare a climate emergency within the last few years
- Spanish government wants 95% of it’s energy to be from renewable sources by 2040 and plans to eliminate emissions from agriculture and transportation
The Climate Center’s rapid decarbonization campaign translates the urgent need for bold action and the groundswell of public support into actual speed and scale greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions.
