Reaching climate-neutrality in Poland by 2050 - summary for policy-makers (October 2020)

Posted on October, 15 2020

It is feasible for Poland to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 at the latest, this report shows.
And doing so will bring significant benefits beyond climate mitigation, notably in terms of air pollution and health, energy poverty, industrial modernisation, competitiveness, mobility and jobs. But bold action in different sectors and a clear prioritisation of climate policy are needed.

This report analyses what must happen in the buildings, electricity, agriculture and forestry (including LULUCF) and transport sectors to achieve net zero nationally by 2050, based on discussions WWF Poland has held with state officials, civil society and businesses.

  • Poland to explicitly and officially support a national 2050 climate neutrality target
  • Scrapping and changing any sectoral policies that are inconsistent with achieving the 2030 and climate neutrality targets
  • EU and other publicly-funded recovery policies to be consistent with the net-zero target
  • The public sector to lead by example in terms of setting science-based climate targets
