Scientists' signal on the threat of climate change is also relevant for Lithuania
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) publishes its Sixth Assessment Report. It confirms that the global mean air temperature has increased by 1.1 °C since pre-industrial times. It is projected that it is still possible to limit warming to 1.5 °C, but this requires urgent, large-scale changes.
OECD highlights for a climate-neutral Lithuania: innovative technology development, tax changes
For Lithuania to reach the 2050 climate neutrality target, the diffusion of innovative technologies is essential, especially in the transport and industrial sectors. The deployment of new and sustainable technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions would create additional jobs in the country and could make Lithuania a technology-selling country.
