We are facing a climate emergency.

In 2015 the EU signed the Paris climate agreement, and in 2021 the Glasgow climate pact. Countries committed to try and keep temperature rise to 1.5° C.

The EU's 55% net emissions reduction target is not enough. 

It needs be at least 65% real emissions reductions by 2030 

The EU must ensure the revised 2030 climate and energy laws - the 'Fit for 55%' package - boost climate action in line with the science

This must be done in a socially fair way - WWF's asks.

"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.
