Policy Event

Effort Sharing Regulation in numbers
Low-carbon opportunities in non-ETS sectors


European Parliament, Brussels, Room A5E1
Register
Background:

In July 2016, the European Commission made a proposal for the Effort Sharing Regulation which sets national emission reduction targets for the EU Member States for sectors including transport, agriculture, buildings and waste. The EU has agreed to 30% emissions cuts in these sectors by 2030.
 
While the proposal offers clear benefits for citizens such as cleaner air, more comfortable homes and better, more livable cities, it includes a number of potential loopholes that could risk the delivery of the EU’s climate objectives.
 
This event explores how to set Europe on a path to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, but it will also look at the ample opportunities that already exist for emission cuts in sectors such as agriculture and transport.
 
Carbon Market Watch and Transport & Environment will also use this occasion to launch a new user-friendly online tool that calculates the impact of flexibilities on the legislation’s emissions reduction potential.

 
The event is kindly co-hosted by Members of the European Parliament Dr. Miriam Dalli (S&D), Mr. Benedek Jávor (Greens) and Ms. Merja Kyllönen (GUE). Speakers at the event include Hans Bergman (head of unit, European Commission), academics and representatives from the business and NGO communities. A detailed agenda will follow shortly.
