Beyond the EU NDC & Impact on the EU ETS – outreach meeting in Paris
January 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
In the context of the Paris Agreement, the European Union is increasing its efforts towards decarbonisation. Currently, the EU climate strategy is centred around three emissions reduction targets compared to 1990 levels: a cut of 20% of GHG emissions by 2020, at least 40% by 2030; and an implicit reduction of 80-95% by 2050. These targets have increasingly been put into question, as many stakeholders are pushing the EU to speed up its decarbonisation efforts and embrace the goal of climate neutrality by 2050.
In November 2019, ERCST presented its draft Report of the project ‘Beyond the EU NDC’. This project aims to assess whether Member States and other stakeholders are undertaking efforts to go ‘beyond’ their respective 2030 targets, and what their perspective is on the 2050 strategy and the potential target of carbon neutrality.
This is one of the outreach meetings of the ‘Beyond the EU NDC’ report, which will be discussed in 6 European capitals to gather further feedback from key stakeholders in Member States. During this meeting, the authors will present the Report and their findings through a presentation, after which the Report will be discussed in a roundtable setting with stakeholders. The final report – which will include feedback from the roundtables across the EU – will be published in February 2020.
We would like to thank the Government of France for supporting the workshop.
