On 15 June, the European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate Change published the report ‘Scientific advice for the determination of an EU-wide 2040 climate target and a greenhouse gas budget for 2030–2050’.
In its report, the European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate Change recommends ambitious 2040 climate target and urgent transitions for the European Union.
The Advisory Board recommends keeping the EU's greenhouse gas emissions budget for 2030 to 2050 within a limit of 11-14 Gt CO2e, in line with limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. To achieve this, the EU must strive for net emissions reductions of 90-95% by 2040, relative to 1990 levels. These reductions are essential for mitigating climate risks and achieving a sustainable future.
Following the publication, the Advisory Board will host a public webinar on 20 June, from 14:00 to 15:00. The Advisory Board will present the new report, and there will be a session for participants to ask questions.
