Denmark shows its commitment to protecting the Earth to the European Union through environmental policies.
Denmark called for the banning of all diesel and gasoline vehicles by 2040 throughout the European Union. Supported by 10 European Union countries, the EU aims to reduce its carbon emissions by 40 percent by 2030. The Commission’s goal is zero emissions by 2050.
Dan Jorgensen, Danish Minister of Environment and Energy, said that they will press the EU Commission to ensure that all vehicles using fossil fuels will be completely shut down in the next 20 years.
