The Environment Council approved on the 6 March 2015 the EU's intended nationally determined contribution to achieve an at least 40% domestic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990 levels by 2030.

The EU Presidency and the Commission will communicate this intended nationally determined contribution (INDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

A new global climate agreement was to be concluded in Paris in December 2015.
