Baden-Württemberg: Kretschmann presents new climate protection law

Is that enough? By 2030, the emission of greenhouse gases in the south-west is to be significantly reduced again. But in the new climate protection law, there are no clear targets when it comes to traffic, the biggest polluter.

Stuttgart (dpa/lsw) - Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann and Environment Minister Thekla Walker (both Green) will present the new climate protection law in Stuttgart at noon today (12 p.m.). The coalition of Greens and CDU agreed on a draft last week after weeks of wrangling, and the government is now dealing with it again. The plan envisages ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gases, for example in the transport, building and energy sectors. With the amendment, Baden-Württemberg wants to be the first federal state to enshrine concrete milestones in law for the reduction of climate-damaging CO2 for the different areas.

It is clear that the government must multiply its efforts in order to achieve the climate goals it has set itself: Green-Black wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 by more than 50 percent compared to 2019. The country is set to become carbon neutral by 2040. Climate neutrality means that only as many greenhouse gases may be emitted as can be bound again. In order to achieve this, Green-Black wants to change or adapt 27 laws and regulations. The environmental associations say that the draft law lacks clear guidelines, especially for traffic, which is a major climate sinner.
