Germany’s industry should work with the government to reach the goals in the country’s newly adopted Climate Action Plan 2050 rather than just criticise the plan or individual measures, energy state secretary Rainer Baake told the “Agenda 2017” conference by daily newspaper “Der Tagesspiegel” in Berlin. The plan itself was a strategy to modernise Germany’s economy as it moved to a zero-carbon future. Business representatives called some of the goals “unrealistic” and warned that an overly ambitious climate drive could endanger the competitiveness of the country’s flagship industries.
