OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF THE CLIMATE PROTECTION PROGRAMME 2030 SHOWS NEED FOR ACTION OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF THE CLIMATE PROTECTION PROGRAMME 2030 SHOWS NEED FOR ACTION 🌎
According to current estimates, the measures of the Federal Government’s Climate Protection Programme 2030 are not yet sufficient to enable Germany to achieve its climate targets of at least a 55 percent reduction in emissions by 2030. A reduction of only 51 percent will be achieved. Overall, this means that there is a gap of around 70 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) compared with the targets of the Federal Climate Protection Act, which are being emitted too much. On behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, IREES was involved in a current study that examines the effects of the climate protection programme 2030 adopted by the Federal Government last October. According to the study, the targets are missed, particularly in the building and transport sectors. In the building sector modelled by IREES, the gap amounts to almost 17 million tonnes of CO2e. The largest gap is in the transport sector with over 30 million tonnes of CO2e.
