About this initiative


The EU needs to develop a long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction strategy by 2020 in-line with the Paris Agreement.

It will analyse pathways in the energy system and other sectors, the role of innovative technologies, sectoral integration and consumers' choice, as well as implications for security of supply, investments, competitiveness, growth and jobs.
