Scholz (third from left) introduced the new agreement to the leaders of the Green Party and the Liberal Democratic Party in Berlin.

The leader of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) of Germany, Olaf Scholz, and the Green Party and the pro-business Liberal Democrats signed a three-party ruling coalition to form a government and formulate plans for Germany’s transition to a green economy. The 16-year government led by Angela Merkel has since ended.

In the joint agreement, climate protection is an important part of it. The goal of the ruling coalition is to phase out the use of coal by 2030, eight years ahead of the original plan.

The new ruling coalition also intends to use 2% of Germany’s land for wind power generation, and will focus on hydrogen energy. By 2030, they hope that 80% of electricity will come from renewable energy sources and that 15 million vehicles on German roads will be electric.

The new ruling coalition also plans to legalize the sale of cannabis in licensed venues and control the quality and distribution of cannabis.
