The European Council has called on the European Commission to present initiatives before the end of the year on the governance of EU climate and energy policies after 2020. This is a unique opportunity to improve the current policy framework, provided that the EU institutions are ambitious enough to take up the challenge.
E3G, WWF and ClientEarth provide “Four Key Messages for the Governance of European Climate and Energy Policies after 2020” with support from the European Climate Foundation:
- Getting the governance arrangements right is critical;
- Governance reform should reinforce the 2020 acquis;
- Post-2020 governance must strengthen the EU’s conformity with the Commission’s core principles of good governance; and
- The door should be open for wider institutional and procedural innovation.
