The Province wants to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and be climate neutral by 2040. In addition, she wants to mitigate the negative effects of climate change (such as flooding, drought, erosion and loss of biodiversity) as much as possible. The provincial government does this by, among other things, bringing together, motivating and supporting local authorities, knowledge institutions, companies and other organizations from East Flanders to take actions that contribute to a circular economy and energy-efficient economy. The provincial climate policy is structured around the following themes: Pleasant living, sustainable energy, sustainable mobility, blue-green networks, climate-innovative economy.
