Briefing: How the EU Budget post-2020 can serve higher climate ambition

‘More for more’: How the EU budget can serve the achievement of 2030 climate and energy targets in line with the Paris Agreement.

The European Union will need to ratchet-up its climate ambition for the next decade. The forthcoming EU budget post-2020 is a crucial tool to serve higher climate ambition for 2030, catalysing the zero-carbon transition of our societies towards 100% renewables and fully energy efficient economies, including the phasing out of fossil fuels. To that end the next EU budget must enshrine an incentive scheme that addresses ambition and delivery gaps of the EU 2030 climate and energy framework. In addition, a system for climate proofing the entire EU budget needs to be established.
