Latest Publications

  • Off target: Ranking of EU countries’ ambition and progress in fighting climate change

    The aim of this publication is to examine which EU Member States are willing to increase their climate action and tackle the gap between the goals of the Paris Agreement and current greenhouse gas emission reduction efforts in the EU.
  • Statement of the Coalition for Higher Ambition

    A unique coalition of businesses, associations, investor groups, local and regional authorities, and civil society organisations have called upon EU Heads of State and Government to step up Europe's climate commitments.
  • Briefing: Key priorities for the new EU long term climate strategy

    The Paris Agreement calls upon all its signatories to communicate “long term low greenhouse gas emissions development strategies” by 2020, which is the same deadline for when countries will have to re-submit their short term climate targets (NDCs).
  • Briefing: How NECPs can set Paris in motion in every country

    EU Member States are, through the new ‘Governance of the Energy Union Regulation’, required to develop ten year Integrated National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs).  With the word ‘integrated’, the NECPs present a new regime in EU Climate and Energy Policy making. The European Union’s credibility in the international climate policy arena depends heavily on its capacity to make a coherent contribution. However, the current EU climate and energy policy regime is not driving transformative change. This biefing paper presents our proposals to improve the current NECPs.
