As a result of various human activities such as burning fossil fuels, industrial processes, land use changes and deforestation, the accumulation of important greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has been increasing rapidly since the industrial revolution and the natural greenhouse effect is strengthening. Looking at the global changes that have been observed so far: An increase of 0.5°C in the last century, an increase of 20cm in sea level since the beginning of this century, a decrease in stratosphere temperature, an increase in the amount of precipitation in the middle latitudes and the amount of precipitation in subtropic latitudes. reduction. Over the past 10 years, there has been a significant increase in global warming. Therefore, countries and governments have taken action to combat climate change.

In this context, the European Union has established the 2030 climate and energy framework, and set out EU-wide targets and policy targets for the 2021-2030 period. These:
Key objectives for 2030:
• At least 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
