In spite of its efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions (in the past 30 years, there has been a 25% decline), the European Union (EU) is still far from reaching the target of carbon neutrality by 2050. Without appropriate action, severe climate impacts will be worse in the decades ahead.
In this report, Institut Montaigne analyses the means and tools for accelerating and completing the European Green Deal. Our policy recommendations are the result of interviews with various stakeholders (academics, policy makers, industry leaders, representatives of civil society) who advocate for a unified European strategy for energy transition, integrating the divergent interests of member states and supporting the effects of this transformation over time.
This report, chaired by Christian Gollier, Managing Director of the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE), aims at contributing to a substantial acceleration of the energy transition, as is needed for the EU to meet its climate goals.
