No EU Country On Track For 2030 Climate Goal
The current CO2 emissions reduction and green energy transition plans by all 28 EU member states do not indicate that any of them will reach their 2030 climate target.
The current emissions reduction and energy transition plans by all of the 28 EU member states do not indicate that any of them will reach their 2030 climate target – but there is still enough time to adjust these plans, according to a report commissioned by the European Climate Foundation* (ECF) and carried out by the Ecologic Institute.
Spain and France lead the ranking with a score of 52 and 47 percent achievement probability respectively, whereas Germany comes in second to last with a score of 12.5 percent, only trailed by Slovenia with a score of 3 percent. “While Germany’s plans contain an above-average goal for energy efficiency and climate goals for 2030 and 2050, clear information on planned measures and corresponding investments is lacking,” the ECF said in an e-mailed statement.
