Bad news, European Commission hasn't set SBTi commitments yet

The European Commission has not established specific commitments to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Without these commitments, it means the Commission has yet to define clear, science-based emission reduction targets in line with the latest climate science.

There’s always room for improvement,

DitchCarbon recommends...

The European Commission should consider implementing green procurement policies to source low-carbon energy and services, which could potentially reduce their emissions by 30%.
