2050 carbon neutrality goal would send ‘strong signal’ – Merkel

“That would be a strong signal that Europe really is the continent that is then climate neutral,’’ Merkel says ahead of talks with her EU counterparts.

However, she notes that this is no done deal.

Germany supports the European green deal presented by European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, and has already committed to the 2050 goal, she notes.
