Targets

In the Urgenda climate case of 24 June 2015, a Dutch court ruled that emissions must be reduced by at least 25 percent by 2020 relative to 1990. In the Coalition Agreement of 10 October 2017, the Dutch government set as the target 49 percent reduction relative to 1990 by 2030. Authorities, companies and interest groups are meeting at five so-called climate tables to try to reach agreements on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The five tables are: Electricity, Built Environment, Industry, Agriculture & Land Use, and Mobility.
