Ukraine recently committed to carbon neutrality in 2060 and signalled support for the European Green Deal aiming for net zero emissions by 2050. On the course of its decarbonisation and the country’s path towards the EU, it will need to adopt the stricter environmental rules and standards introduced by the Green Deal. At the same time, it will need to restructure its coal sector, which is heavily subsidised, loss-making and environmentally harmful.
Our policy event “Reaching Ukraine’s energy and climate targets”, organized together with the NGO “DixiGroup” in Kyiv, was a complete success. 240 participants attended the meeting, and another 200+ visitors watched the livestreams.
