This is a climate emergency

We are facing a climate emergency. We must act. 

In 2015 the EU signed the international Paris climate agreement. We committed to keeping global heating well below 2°C and pursuing efforts to keep it to 1.5° C.

The EU’s climate and energy targets are too low. The 55% net reduction target agreed in the EU climate law is not enough. 

The EU must ensure the revised 2030 climate and energy laws - the 'Fit for 55%' package - boost EU climate action in line with the 65% emissions reductions by 2030 which climate science shows are needed. 

'Fit for 55%' must become fit for 1.5°C. 

"Reaching net zero emissions by 2040 in the EU is essential if we are to uphold the Paris Agreement and limit devastating climate change.”

Cleaning up industry: why the EU's strategy isn't enough yet

 
The new EU Industrial Strategy, released by the European Commission on 10 March 2020, is the first sector-specific plan to be published since the European Green Deal was announced.

However, the new Industrial Strategy fails to capture how and by when EU Industries will achieve a net zero greenhouse gas emissions or manufacture climate-neutral products. 

This analysis by WWF and Carbon Market Watch looks at what needs to be improved in the strategy.
