Framework Law on the Climate


The new Framework Law on the Climate (Law 98/2021 of 31 December) was published on 31 December 2021. This new Law repeals Law 93/2001 of 20 August and establishes the guiding principles of climate policy and governance. It also introduces targets and provides for mechanisms to combat climate change, to decarbonise the economy and to achieve sustainable development.

The ultimate goal is to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 and the possibility of bringing this target forward to 2045 is being studied.
