Austria carbon neutral by 2040

Hard-line immigration policies and ambitious climate targets are the result of Austria’s coalition talks.

In an unlikely partnership, the conservative Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) and the Greens have agreed to rely completely on renewable energy by 2030 and make the country carbon neutral by 2040. To reach these targets the new government will tax CO2 emissions and make flying more expensive.

At the same time the coalition led by prime minister Sebastian Kurz will extend a headscarf ban and introduce preventive custody for potentially dangerous asylum-seekers.
