A vision for strategic, low carbon and competitive aluminium
Today, the European Union is well advanced in reaching its objective of cutting its domestic GHG emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030 from 1990 levels. This is in line with the EU objective to reduce its emissions by 80-95 percent by 2050 compared to 1990. With its recent publication on the EU mid-century strategy the European Commission opened a thorough debate to ensure that the EU’s climate policy is in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement, while aligning action in key areas such as industrial policy, finance, or research.
Vision 2050 is European Aluminium’s contribution to the debate, setting out different scenarios how the sector can contribute to the EU mid-century strategy and outlines the conditions necessary for the sector to realise its full potential for decarbonisation.
