Visegrad group to agree common stance on EU's 2050 climate goals - Hungary

BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic - the so-called “Visegrad Four” countries - will agree a common stance on the European Union’s 2050 climate goals, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff told a news conference on Thursday.

The EU has agreed to substantial reductions of carbon emissions by 2030 and its executive, the Commission, wants the bloc to reduce them to zero by 2050 to help stop global warming.

EU leaders will debate whether to target going carbon-neutral by 2050 at a summit this week.
