President Volodymyr Zelensky assured representatives of the world community that Ukraine will achieve climate neutrality by 2060 as Dim TV reported citing the president at the 26th UN Conference on Climate Issues.
"Ukraine was one of the first in Europe to ratify the Paris [climate] agreements. In terms of emission reductions, it ranks fourth among 45 parties to the UN Framework Convention. Our goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 65% by 2030. And no later than 2060, achieve climate neutrality," Zelensky stressed.
He drew attention to the participation of Ukraine in the initiatives of the UN climate summit, including the declaration on forests and land use. The President did not forget to mention the importance of the country's access to long-term financing of climate protection programs, in particular within the framework of the "green" climate fund.
As we reported, the U.S. and Germany made a decision to make the energy transition the main task in the developing countries and focus on the support of Ukraine and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe within the partnership in climate and energy spheres.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in the UK to take part in the UN Climate Change Conference COP26.
We remind that the 26th conference of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP26) officially opened in Glasgow, Scotland on October 31.
