Scaling up climate action in the European Union
The European Union‘s targets and policies are not yet compatible with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C limit. This report, the second country assessment in the Climate Action Tracker's Scaling Up Climate Action Series, analyses areas where the European Union could accelerate its climate action. The report illustrates GHG emissions reductions from such actions, along with other benefits. Scaling up climate action in the European Union’s electricity supply, residential building and passenger road and rail transport —covering around 60% of the EU’s current energy related emissions—can decarbonise these sectors by 2050.
