European Union Reduced Carbon Emissions by 22 Percent in 14 Years

The European Union (EU) has announced a 22 per cent reduction in carbon emissions across the region from 2008 to 2022. According to data from the European Statistical Office, this reduction was made possible in particular by the increased use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency improvements. However, experts emphasise that this reduction is not enough to achieve the EU's broader climate goals. In 2022, greenhouse gas emissions from economic activity in the EU had reached 3.6 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide. This represents a 22 per cent reduction compared to 2008. The EU reported that this reduction was achieved through innovative practices and technological developments, especially in energy production, transport and industrial activities.
