The need to address the concerns over unsustainable resources and measures to consistently improve the natural environment issues. The EU batteries Regulation draft mainly addresses the sustainability life cycle of the batteries, resilience in the EU supply chain, and the social-environmental impact on the battery life cycle.
The transport sector has been identified as one of the major sectors to deal with the emission problem in a major way. Since 1990, the emissions increased by over 24% in 2019, only in the transport sector. The goal to limit global warming below 1.5 to 20C, needs to go through a set of challenging steps including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030.
The budget assigned by the EU draft for the EU transport sector is enough to be used for the next 13 years if and only if a constant emissions rate has been achieved to target the 2050 climate neutrality. Also, the emission in the transport sector needs to fall to zero by 2045, so that a target below the global warming temperature of 1.50 can be achieved.
The climate protection initiatives are strongly been taken by the EU with a target being shared by Germany to reduce the greenhouse gas emission by 70% by 2030, known as burden-sharing. The German government as per the German Climate Protection Act, 12 December 2019, wants to strengthen the greenhouse gas reduction policies to achieve its neutrality target by 2045.
As per the current law, the greenhouse gas emission reduction of more than 10% by 2030 is predicted to be achievable in the transport sector.
