Portugal will use its six-month presidency of the EU to finalise a landmark law containing the bloc’s emissions-cutting targets. According to the environment minister, the bill would make the EU’s climate targets irreversible, including its plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, and speed up emissions reductions this decade. João Pedro Matos Fernandes told Reuters in an interview he hoped the law could be agreed by early April.
