1.5°C Pathways for Europe: Achieving the highest plausible climate ambition

To date, governments have submitted inadequate and unambitious national climate targets that are not sufficient to meet the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal according to the latest available science. This report presents domestic emissions and energy mix pathways required to meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C goal for the EU27 and nine Member States: Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and Sweden, and assesses if their current 2030 climate targets are in line with these pathways.
