EU Paris ratification is meaningless without real climate action

EEB reaction to the European Commission’s proposal to ratify the Paris Climate Agreement:

Roland Joebstl, Climate and Energy Policy Officer for the European Environmental Bureau (EEB):

We welcome the European Commission’s step closer to ratifying the Paris climate agreement, but today’s proposal is meaningless without real climate action in the EU. This means higher ambition on the EU’s largest climate instrument, the Effort Sharing Decision (ESD) , which will address emissions from a variety of sectors including agriculture, transport, buildings and waste management. EU member states should not be granted exemptions through backdoor negotiations, as seems currently to be the case.”
