Five years since the Paris agreements! And I am, from Brussels, happy to meet you virtually, the bearer of good news, a strong message. Yesterday, the 27 European leaders met and made an ambitious, clear and precise commitment. It is the ambition to reduce our emissions by at least 55% by 2030. Exactly one year ago, in December 2019, we committed to climate neutrality in 2050. We will remain fully mobilized, because for us it is a complete paradigm shift.
And this is also the meaning of the financial agreement that has been reached at European level. 1,800 billion euros will be mobilized over the next few years, of which at least 30% will be dedicated to meet this challenge of climate change. For us, it is a social project, it is a prosperity project, which is reflected in the framework of this “European Green Deal”. It is a battery of ambitious measures to develop innovation, support jobs, improve the living environment.
We also want to act in the diplomatic field. We know that multilateral mobilization, international cooperation will be key. And this is why systematically, in terms of economic partnerships, commercial partnerships, we want to encourage all our partners around the world to join this same ambition.
There is a challenge for our generation: that of putting forward all our collective intelligence, of putting forward all our determination to ensure that we are up to this challenge, up to showing our respect, our consideration. for Humanity. And for the generations that follow us.
