Germany’s emissions hit 70-year low as it reduces reliance on coal

Germany’s emissions hit a 70-year low last year as Europe’s largest economy reduced its reliance on coal. A study by the thinktank Agora Energiewende found that Germany emitted 673m tonnes of greenhouse gases in 2023, 73m tonnes fewer than in 2022.
