The upcoming edition of #FSRDebates will discuss the recently released report ‘Towards EU climate neutrality: progress, policy gaps and opportunities’ delivered by the European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate Change (ESABCC). Lena Kitzing, FSR Part-Time Professor and ESABCC Member, a co-author of the report, will join us to present its findings. – Watch the recorded session 

The ESABCC was established by the European Climate Law of 2021 to provide the EU with scientific knowledge relating to climate change. In this report the Advisory Board takes stock of the progress towards climate targets and the consistency of climate action. It also presents scientific advice on policy actions supporting the achievement of climate neutrality by 2050 at the latest.

This debate will provide space to discuss key recommendations for a more effective implementation and design of the EU climate framework. The recommendations range from stepping up Member States’ efforts, adopting pending legislation, incentivising energy demand reduction, and phasing out fossil fuel subsidies, to streamlining policies, strengthening the governance framework, and adapting the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS).

Among other things, the debate will focus on which policy measures are best fit to reach the EU climate targets.
