Israel considering climate law to decrease greenhouse gas emissions

Jerusalem

Israel is considering a comprehensive climate law, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, according to the Environmental Protection Ministry.

The proposed law also includes the establishment of a Climate Cabinet led by the Prime Minister, a Climate Council for policy-making, and a multidisciplinary expert committee for professional input and review.

It also requires every government plan involving emissions and climate impacts to conduct a climate risk assessment. The previous government’s climate law was approved in May 2022 but was dissolved a month later.
