REPORT: Time to step up national climate action: An assessment of the draft updated National Energy and Climate Plans
The submitted draft NECP updates are inadequate not only to align with a 1.5°C compatible trajectory, but also to comply with minimum EU climate and energy requirements for 2030.
We have to substantially change the way we produce and consume energy, build and renovate buildings, move around, transport goods, handle our waste and produce food. The National Energy and Climate Plans touch upon policies and measures related to almost every aspect of life and economy. To curb greenhouse gas emissions in line with the 1.5°C limit is an enormous task ahead, that requires an unprecedented level of action – for which NECPs should pave the way.
