    06.12.2013 | Press Releases

    With a minimal agreement on the pathway to defining an ambitious binding climate agreement in Paris in 2015, the climate conference in Warsaw pushed most of the work that needs to be done way ahead. While the EU fought for a robust timetable for putting emission reduction commitments for the new Treaty on the table, it failed to provide the necessary incentives to get all developing countries on board, especially the emerging economies.

  • CAN Europe Position paper on post-2020 EU climate and energy targets

    31.10.2013 | CAN Europe Positions

Only the upper end of the EU's 2050 commitment to reduce emissions by 80% to 95% will allow the EU to make a fair and safe contribution to keeping global average temperature rise below 2°C.
