Poland could reach carbon neutrality by 2056

24 Aug 2020

According to a study by the government's Polish Economic Institute (PEI), Poland could achieve climate neutrality by 2056. Under a pessimistic scenario, the country would reach net zero emissions by 2067. Poland is the only European Union member country that has not endorsed a net-zero carbon target by 2050. 

The country intends the share of coal in power production to be around 56-60% in 2030. In 2019, electricity production from coal and lignite accounted for almost three-quarters of the total generation.
