2021 annual report: Shaping a carbon-free society


In the midst of a tumultuous year, revisiting our 2021 priorities and achievements took on a new dimension. Few could have anticipated the full extent of the upheavals, triggered by Russia’s aggression, that have intervened since.

But despite the continued obstacles, attacks and foot-dragging from many established interests, we see that the global framework for climate action – with the Paris Agreement at its heart – continues to prove its resilience. From the Fit for 55 package, to COP26, to the strengthening of civic participation in climate action through Citizen Assemblies, we and our partners supported a wide spectrum of valuable action over the past year. This Annual Report underlines our critical and growing role in safeguarding the EU’s – and the world’s – climate ambition.
