European Parliament demands more ambitious climate targets from Commission

The European Parliament has passed a resolution proposal yesterday (Wednesday February 5th), which demands a more ambitious target-setting for the climate and energy policy until 2030. The EU has committed to the well-known 3-times-20 targets until 2020: 20 percent renewable energy in the energy mix, 20 percent more energy efficiency and a 20 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, as compared with 1990. Currently, the Commission, the European Parliament and the EU-Council are discussing the future targets for 2030. The Commission has issued a proposal for the climate and energy policy until 2030 with 2 main targets: greenhouse gas emissions should be reduced by 40 percent (as compared to 1990) and renewables should make up 27 percent of the EU's energy mix.

The EU has committed to the well-known 3-times-20 targets until 2020: 20 percent renewable energy in the energy mix, 20 percent more energy efficiency and a 20 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, as compared with 1990.

The Commission has issued a proposal for the climate and energy policy until 2030 with 2 main targets: greenhouse gas emissions should be reduced by 40 percent (as compared to 1990) and renewables should make up 27 percent of the EU's energy mix.

The report of the European Parliament about the climate and energy policy, which was adopted yesterday, demands a more ambitious target-setting until 2030. Besides the 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions proposed by the Commission, it calls for a 30 percent share of renewables in the energy mix and 40 percent more energy efficiency compared to 1990. Rapporteur was the Christian-Democrat Anne Delvaux.

On Tuesday, the Green group even pledged for climate targets that were considerably higher than the targets of the Parliament's resolution. Shortly after the result of the vote in the European Parliament, we spoke with the Dutch MEP Bas Eickhout from the Green group.

Europäisches Parlament fordert ambitionniertere Klimaziele von der Kommission

06.02.2014 - Das Europaparlament hat am gestrigen Mittwoch für einen Entschliessungsantrag gestimmt, der die Kommission zu einer ambitionnierteren Zielsetzung für die Klima- und Energiepolitik bis 2030 auffordert. Für das Jahr 2020 hat sich die EU zu den berühmten 3 Mal 20 Zielen verpflichtet, das heisst: 20 Prozent erneuerbare Energien im Energiemix, 20 Prozent mehr Energieeffizienz und 20 Prozent weniger Treibhausgasemissionen im Vergleich zum Jahr 1990. Gegenwärtig beraten europäische Kommission, Europaparlament und EU-Rat über die weitere Zielsetzung bis 2030. Die Kommission hatte Mitte Januar einen Vorschlag für die Klima- und Energiepolitik bis 2030 mit 2 Hauptzielen eingereicht, wonach die Treibhausgasausstosse im Vergleich zu 1990 um 40 Prozent reduziert werden sollten und erneuerbare Energien 27 Prozent des europäischen Energiemixes betragen sollten.
