ECF CEO describes Europe’s dilemmas in transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
Europe has a significant untapped potential for converting wastes from farming, forestry, industry and households to advanced low-carbon biofuels, but only if it sets a strong sustainability framework and ambitious decarbonisation targets for transport fuels in 2030, finds a new report entitled “Wasted: Europe’s Untapped Resource.”
ECF CEO Johannes Meier describes the transition to a decarbonised economy as a huge opportunity for the EU to set an example for the rest of the world.
The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) contains a wealth of information on the projected impact of climate change on business operations.
New research shows that countries can decarbonise at faster-than-average rates while still generating new sources of economic growth and jobs.
Our joint effort with the Mercator Foundation seeks to build a shared perspective on how to transition Germany to renewable energy, energy efficiency, and sustainable development over the next 35-40 years.
The Coalition for Energy Savings, co-founded by the ECF, has helped to build awareness of the benefits of energy efficiency and to advocate for greater political ambition.
Establishment of a stringent emissions standard for cars of 95g CO2/km by 2020 is good for all.
Efficiency regulations for boilers will cut CO2 emissions equivalent to taking 65 million cars off the road.
