Ukraine has expressed its readiness to join the European “Green Agreement.” The parties will officially confirm their interest in the agreement on 1 October at the Ukraine-EU summit.
The Head of the European Union Delegation to Ukraine Matti Maasikas announced this during the 11th European-Ukrainian Energy Day, one of the most important conferences in the renewable energy and energy efficiency field in Ukraine.
The main topic of this year’s discussion was the Ukrainian energy future, its prospects, and development in the EU Green Agreement framework.
Olga Buslavets, the Minister of Energy of Ukraine, confirmed at the conference that Ukraine sought to join the European Green Course.
“In my opinion, the ‘Green Agreement’ is an opportunity for Ukraine to become stronger. To ensure the ‘Green Agreement’ implementation, Ukraine implements a powerful energy reform, which provides for the systematic measures to improve Ukraine’s energy efficiency. Today, renewable energy sources are the key not only to the successful development of national economy but also to the energy neutrality,” she said.
As one knows, the European Union has set a goal – to make Europe the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050. One of the priorities in this direction is clean energy development and environmental pollution reduction.
To recap, Ukraine’s Government approved an interdepartmental working group on the European Green Deal project in September.
