The Effort Sharing Regulation (ESR) is the EU’s most significant climate regulation, covering 60% of its emissions, and is therefore essential to collective EU efforts to help stop runaway climate change. It is also critical to Member States ownership of – and accountability to citizens for – the transition to a zero-emissions society.

For these reasons, we call on you as co-legislators in the revision of the ESR to make significant improvements to the Commission’s proposal, both to ensure that governments firmly commit to their targets, to bring EU efforts in line with the 1.5C goal of the Paris Agreement and to use it as a vehicle to strengthen the national planning and governance mechanisms in the Governance Regulation that are central to meeting the EU’s climate targets
