In order to calculate the GHG emissions targets for the years 2020 and 2050, the 1990 EU-27 raw value of thousands of tonnes CO2-eq. is used as the base year for the calculations. For 2020, 20% of the EU-27 1990 raw value is subtracted from the original EU-27 1990 raw value. For 2050, the 80% of the EU-27 1990 raw value is subtracted from the original EU-27 1990 raw value.

Avoid disposing any waste on the streets, in nature, and especially not in the gutter. This rubbish can end up in the water treatment system and overcharge the decontamination process. Take advantage of city waste baskets. They are everywhere and that's what they are for.
