2050 climate plans

The EU has pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030, and to achieve zero net emissions 'as soon as possible.'
EU Member States must produce ‘National Energy and Climate Plans' (NECPs) as well as longer-term climate strategies, to show how they will cut their emissions. 

Ensuring the plans are ambitious and developed in a transparent way - with the participation of civil society and stakeholders - is key to meeting the EU’s emissions reductions goals.

What's more, the EU is currently preparing its own long-term climate strategy - 'mid-century roadmap' - for later in 2018. EU leaders want to achieve zero net emissions 'as soon as possible'. For WWF, the EU should aim to do this by 2040 to be in line with the Paris Agreement

What is WWF doing?

WWF is working to ensure the EU mid-century climate roadmap is as strong as possible. With our national WWF colleagues, we will do the same for the NECPs. 

Also, WWF was responsible for the EU LIFE-funded MaxiMiseR project, which ran until June 2018. The project aimed to make long-term climate plans as strong as possible - and  to see how they could be financed through the Emissions Trading System.
