Gozo chosen by the EU commission to become climate neutral by 2030

LA VALLETTA (MALTA) (ITALPRESS/MNA) – Gozo is among 100 European cities to become climate neutral by 2030 as part of ‘Horizon Europè, a programme of some €360 million funded by the European Union.
The aim of the programme is to develop clean mobility, energy efficiency, green urban planning, research and innovation.
377 cities applied from across Europe with small member states such as Malta, Luxembourg and Cyprus each receiving one post. Cities chosen include Rome, Paris, Madrid and Munich.
The cities participating in the project have to draw up a Climate City Contract, which will include a plan to achieve climate neutrality across all sectors, including energy, buildings, waste management and transport. The partecipating cities will be held accountable for keeping up with their climate obligations and to better engage with citizens to deliver on their established goals.
The EU aims to be climate-neutral by 2050 – an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. This objective is at the heart of the European Green Deal and in line with the EU’s commitment to global climate action under the Paris Agreement.
