Background

On 14 July 2021, the Commission presented the first series of adopted files under the "Fit for 55" package.

The revisions and initiatives linked to the European Green Deal and, in particular, the EU's ambitious target of a 55% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2030 are presented under this package.

The "Fit for 55" package consists of a set of inter-connected proposals, which all drive towards the same goal of ensuring a fair, competitive and green transition by 2030 and beyond. The package strengthens eight existing pieces of legislation and presents five new initiatives, across a range of policy areas and economic sectors: climate, energy and fuels, transport, buildings, land use and forestry. The chosen policy mix is a balance between pricing, targets, standards and support measures.

This "Chapeau Communication" gives an overview of the different proposals as well as their linkages and explains the toolbox of policy measures chosen in order to attain an overall balance between fairness, emission reductions and competitiveness.
