EU countries each have a national target for carbon emissions reductions in sectors such as transport, buildings, and agriculture. These targets are set under the EU’s Effort-Sharing Decision (ESD), which also lays out rules for ensuring those targets are met.

The ESD is currently being updated to run to 2030. This paper by the WWF European Policy Office and ClientEarth sets out how the updated ESD and its rules must be consistent with other policy areas, as well as ensuring transparency and accountability.
