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 achieving net zero emissions "as soon as possible"; reaching 32% renewables and 32.5% energy efficiency by 2030. This is not enough! 


What is WWF doing?

WWF believes that the EU should aim to reach zero emissions by 2040 to uphold the Paris Agreement and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

To achieve this, WWF is advocating and campaigning for:
  • the 2030 climate and energy targets to be made more ambitious
  • a strong EU mid-century strategy which aims to reach zero net emissions by 2040
  • an ambitious industrial decarbonisation policy;
  • 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.
