Event 24.04.18 | Bringing Paris Home: Net-Zero Emissions in the EU

As discussions about the EU’s mid-century decarbonisation strategy gather pace, the European Climate Foundation is pleased to invite you to an afternoon conference to explore what delivering the Paris Agreement means for Europe.

Thursday 24 May 2018
15.00-17.30
Concert Noble, Rue d’Arlon, 82, 1000 Brussels

The event seeks to help ensure the 2050 discussion gets off on the right footing, with political leadership, due respect for scientific evidence, leading edge systems understanding, transparency and public debate. It will feature the launch and demonstration of our open-source 2050 Roadmap Tool, developed by Climact in consultation with many expert partners.

The 2050 Roadmap Tool is an economy-wide, open-source modelling tool based on based on the Carbon Transparency Initiative (CTI) model developed by the Climate Works Foundation (CWF). We hope the tool will contribute to understanding the possible pathways, trade-offs and implications of transitioning to a Paris-compatible economy. It can address questions such as:

  • What are the different pathways leading to net-zero emissions
  • What are the key short-term decisions/actions to be made to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 at the latest?
  • What are the implications of choices made in one sector for others?
  • What roles can technological and behavioural changes play?
