More climate action

Climate change threatens the world’s communities and ecosystems.
In 2015 195 countries, including the EU, signed a historic climate agreement in Paris. We committed to keeping global warming well below 2°C and pursuing efforts to keep it to 1.5° C.

The EU’s climate and energy targets lack ambition: cutting emissions 40% by 2030 and 80-95% by 2050; reaching 27% renewables by 2030. This is not enough! 

What is WWF doing?

WWF believes that EU emissions must be cut by 55% by 2030, by 95% by 2050, to stand a chance of upholding the Paris Agreement and avoiding runaway climate change.

Europe can reach 100% renewable energy supply before 2050!

To achieve this, WWF is advocating and campaigning for:
  • transparent, binding and ambitious climate and energy targets to be implemented for 2030 and 2050;
  • a reformed Emissions Trading System so that the polluter pays;
  • an EU’s Effort-Sharing Regulation not to be undermined by ‘loopholes’ which allow countries to emit more than they should;
  • EU countries to phase out fossil fuels and their subsidies rapidly, beginning with coal;
  • finance for clean technologies, for the just transition, and for adaptation, loss and damage and scaled up climate action.
