Citizens and businesses are struggling to pay their bills due to the extremely high energy prices. At the same time, the EU has proposed extending the EU ETS to private sectors for the first time. The policy briefing argues how to set up the Social Climate Fund so it is fair and effective.
The Centre for Transport and Energy and EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy organized a second roundtable, this time focusing on ETS2 and Social Climate Fund with the title Decarbonisation as a cure for energy poverty: What next for the Social Climate Fund. This publication summarises the outcomes of the discussion.
The Layman´s Report brings a summary of The Unify project that started from the conviction that by developing ambitious NECPs and nLTS Member States can accelerate the transition towards a low-carbon and resilient economy in Europe and push the Union not only to meet its emissions reduction targets, but go beyond them, thereby bringing the EU-wide emission reduction trajectory closer to Paris Agreement commitments.
We invite you to a webinar with James Turrito from the Clean Air Task Force, who has been mapping methane leaks from gas infrastructure in the EU, including the Czech Republic. The event will take place on 31 August 2022 at 2pm online on Zoom.
We would like to invite you to the discussion. Within the LIFE Unify project, Focus is organizing an event on local energy & climate action. The event will discuss best practices of local climate & energy action across Europe.
The aim of the project is to contribute to support the efficient use of EU money in the participating countries, highlight best practices and ‘lessons learnt’, and widely disseminate these observations both nationally and internationally. Thus, the project will help to improve the level and quality of EU funding and fiscal policy for EU climate action and EGD delivery by focusing on the game-changing actions at the national level.
The EEB and the Clean Air Action Group (Levegő Munkacsoport) launched a new project in October 2020. It aims to fom the EU budget for the period 2021-27 and the European Recovery Plan. Consortium members provide expert input to the policy process and strive to fulfil the participatory principle.
The project raises awareness, builds capacity, and supports EU citizens, particularly young people, in building public support for ambitious climate change and development policies which have gender equality at their core.
Partner organizations bring together experience of climate change campaigning and communication in Europe, gender equality, European youth mobilisation, and climate change development programmes in the Global South.
Centre for Transport and Energy is a non-profit non-governmental organisation founded in 1998 that focuses on the environmental impacts of transportation and energy production. Our aim is building and reinforcing a wide platform of groups and individuals who are interested in working towards sustainable transport and energy future.
