European Commission: public consultation on defining an EU climate target for 2040

 EU public consultation climate target for 2040

The European Climate Law calls on the European Commission to make a proposal to set an intermediate Union-wide climate target for 2040 with a view to achieving the climate neutrality objective by 2050 and to publish a report on the projected indicative GHG budget for 2030-2050.

The first step towards this will be a Commission Communication which is planned for the first quarter of 2024. For the preparation of this communication the European Commission calls on all stakeholders to submit evidence and feedback on the EU’s future climate ambition and its challenges and opportunities for all sectors of the economy. This is done via a public consultation in the form of a questionnaire to which respondents can also attach position papers.

The Commission especially invites scientific researchers, as well as academic organisations, learned societies, and scientific associations with expertise in the analysis of climate mitigation strategies and in the analysis of climate impacts to submit relevant published or preprint scientific research, analyses and data. Submissions that synthesise the current state of knowledge in relevant fields are particularly welcome.

The consultation is open for participation until 23 June 2023.
