BERLIN (Reuters) – German Finance Ministry Olaf Scholz said he and Environment Minister Svenja Schulze had agreed that they would very rapidly propose legislation implementing Thursday’s Constitutional Court ruling on a climate change law.
Germany must update its climate law by the end of next year to set out how it will bring carbon emissions down nearly to zero by 2050, its top court ruled on Thursday.
Economy Ministry Peter Altmaier promised proposals for next week.
