Dear President/Prime Minister/Chancellor,

We understand you will be discussing the regrettable withdrawal by the US federal administration from the Paris Agreement.

Climate Action Network Europe very much welcomed the EU's reaction to this decision and the expression of its clear support to the full implementation of the Paris Agreement. We similarly welcomed the strong support of so many other major carbon emitters as well as the determination of hundreds of US States, cities and companies to implement the US pledge to the Paris Agreement.

Dear Member of the European Parliament,

Today you will vote on the so-called “Climate Action Regulation implementing the Paris Agreement” (Effort Sharing Regulation, or ESR). This regulation covers about 60% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. If designed correctly, it can drive innovation in the sectors involved, and lead to great benefits for the society such as cleaner air, reduced energy poverty and more liveable cities.

This letter is addressed to Environment Ministers and Permanent Representatives of Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and Bulgaria

Dear Environment Ministers,

As the ETS revision process closes to an end, we would like to bring to your attention, the crucial issue of establishing a Just Transition Fund in order to support local economies and especially workers and their families in regions where lignite and coal mining activity is expected to decline in the coming decade.

Dear Rapporteur/Shadow Rapporteur,

As the ETS revision process closes to an end, we would like to bring to your attention to important differences between the decision of the European Parliament and the “general approach” agreed between the Environment Ministers in terms of EU ETS Funds. The eligibility criteria for investments under an article 10c derogation and the establishment of a Just Transition Fund. Both issues concern lower income Member States and are crucial for their alignment with EU’s ambitious decarbonization objectives.

25.05.2017 | Letters to Policy Makers

Dear Environment Minister,

Ahead of the upcoming trilogue meeting on the revision of EU’s Emission Trading System (ETS), the undersigned, representing 30 networks and organizations representing citizens from across Europe, would like to urge you to ensure that the funding mechanisms dedicated to help lower-income Member States transform their energy systems (article 10c and the Modernization Fund) are robust and well-designed to truly support the development of renewable energy and energy savings instead of subsidizing coal plants.

Dear Commissioner Arias Cañete,

The EU is in the process of deciding the accounting rules for land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) for the post-2020 period. The EU’s decision will have international significance.

Dear Commissioner Vella,

On 28 April the Commission will seek the approval of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) Article 75 Committee for a revised version of the so-called ‘LCP BREF’ industrial standards document. It is essential that no last-minute changes are made to weaken the final draft of this document, which was agreed by consensus at the IED Forum meeting in October 2016.
