Implementing All EU Directives Consistently

As an EU member state, Croatia is fully committed to the European Green Deal, which should result in Europe becoming the world’s first carbon neutral continent by 2050. Croatia thus has generous European funds at its disposal, which represent invaluable assistance in achieving its goals.

In following EU directives, Croatia tailored its development strategies to the principles of sustainability, while also placing an emphasis on tangible measures with which it will achieve the goals of increasing energy sustainability and use of renewable energy sources, as well as decarbonising all energy consumption and production sectors.

With a view to 2050, the Energy Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia until 2030 envisages a significantly higher share of energy production from renewable sources and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as progress on the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan for the 2021-2030 period.

Current assessments show progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality and the cleanliness of the environment and a positive environmental impact of the economy.

However, it has also been noted that insufficient progress has been achieved in terms of green energy production and recycling.
