EU Roadmap 2050: policy briefing and analysis
- 31 March 2011
On March 9 2011 we published an article on Roadmap 2050, supporting the Roadmap's direction in reaching a low carbon economy in line with EU goals, but emphasizing that action must be taken now.
Sandra Roling, Stakeholder Engagement Manager Europe and Luc Bas, Director of European Programs, both of The Climate Group, Brussels, offer a more extensive briefing and analysis of the Roadmap 2050, which can be downloaded here.
The analysis includes:
- Overview of the Roadmap 2050: key messages and pathways for the different sectors
- The Climate Group's response and necessary actions
The Climate Group welcomes the long term trajectory of the Roadmap, but reinforces the need for investments to take place now to pave the way for large-scale deployment of low carbon solutions and maintain technology leadership. A 30% emissions reduction target for 2020 is a crucial signal to guide business innovation in the right direction. The Climate Group will continue to advocate for an ambitious target in its "Joint EU business call for 30% emissions reductions by 2020" already supported by more than 30 major companies.
