EU2030 & Energy Union
What is WWF doing?WWF believes that the EU should aim to reach zero net emissions by 2040 to play its role in keeping global warming to 1.5°C, as per the Paris Agreement.
This means we need much higher 2030 greenhouse gas targets, and targets of 45% renewable energy and 40% energy savings. Only higher ambition will ensure that the EU lives up to its international commitments to prevent dangerous climate change.
To secure these targets, WWF is advocating and campaigning for:
- Transparent, binding and more ambitious climate and energy targets to be implemented for 2030 and beyond;
- Reforms to European energy markets so that efficiency and renewables can reach their maximum potential without being undermined by vested interests;
- An energy transition for citizens which gives everyone the opportunity to produce their own power and manage how they consume energy;
- 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.
