A five year policy blueprint for Europe – Report launch on 24 September 2019

We have little more than 10 years to decarbonise Europe or face a world of increasing climate chaos, mass migration and political instability. The continuity of our way of life is at stake and all eyes are on political leaders, particularly in Europe. European Commission president-elect Ursula von der Leyen has answered the call. The challenge will be met. We now have a mandate for systemic change towards a bright and secure future. The question is passing from if or when, to how.

On 24 September, the EEB, with the contribution of Climact and IDDRI, present a 5-year blueprint of policy options towards net-zero emissions in Europe. Covering all sectors of the economy, the report pulls together leading recommendations from thinktanks, scientists, thought leaders and NGOs. It offers a sector by sector toolbox to successfully navigate the new European Commission term, with targets and initiatives for the fields of governance, finance, industry, energy, transport, agriculture, the circular economy and social policy.

This report draws substantially on reports in the “Net Zero 2050” series published by the European Climate Foundation in 2018/9, with contributions from a consortium of experts and organisations. The objective of the Net Zero 2050 series is to start building a vision and evidence base for the transition to net zero emission societies in Europe and beyond, by mid-century at the latest. This report has been commissioned by the European Climate Foundation (ECF).
