Europe’s state of the environment 2020: change of direction urgently needed to face climate change challenges, reverse degradation and ensure future prosperity

Faits marquants AEE - mer, 12/04/2019 - 00:05

Europe will not achieve its 2030 goals without urgent action during the next 10 years to address the alarming rate of biodiversity loss, increasing impacts of climate change and the overconsumption of natural resources. The European Environment Agency’s (EEA) latest ‘State of the Environment’ report published today states that Europe faces environmental challenges of unprecedented scale and urgency. The report says, however, there is reason for hope, amid increased public awareness of the need to shift to a sustainable future, technological innovations, growing community initiatives and stepped up EU action like the European Green Deal.

More national climate policies expected, but how effective are the existing ones?

Dernières publications AEE - jeu, 11/28/2019 - 15:02

In 2019, EU Member States reported that they had already adopted or were planning to adopt 1925 national policies and corresponding measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve climate targets. Many of these measures also help achieve energy efficiency and renewable energy targets. While climate action is clearly taking place across Europe, EU Member States still provide insufficient evidence of the effectiveness and costs of their policies. This briefing presents an overview of the information on national policies and measures for climate change mitigation, reported in 2019 by Member States to the European Environment Agency (EEA) under the EU Monitoring Mechanism Regulation.

Les donneurs doivent veiller à ce que le financement du développement contribue davantage aux objectifs climatiques

Actualités sur l'environnement OCDE - jeu, 11/28/2019 - 09:57
Les pays donneurs doivent s’attacher à mieux aligner le financement du développement avec les objectifs climatiques, en augmentant la part allouée à l’action climatique et en supprimant les dotations à l’appui d’activités nouvelles dans le domaine des combustibles fossiles, selon un nouveau rapport de l’OCDE.

EU Member States add more climate policies, better evidence on costs and effectiveness needed

Faits marquants AEE - mer, 11/27/2019 - 10:00

The European Union (EU) Member States reported more than 400 new climate change mitigation policies between 2017 and 2019, according to data released today by the European Environment Agency (EEA). EU Member States have now reported more than 1 900 climate actions, most of them targeting energy supply or energy consumption.

Carbon Pricing and Competitiveness: Are they at Odds? - Environment Working Paper

Actualités sur l'environnement OCDE - jeu, 11/21/2019 - 17:00
This paper reviews ex-post empirical assessments on the impact of carbon pricing on competitiveness in OECD and G20 countries in the electricity and industrial sectors. Most of these assessments find no statistically significant effects of carbon pricing or energy prices on different dimensions of competitiveness, including net imports, foreign direct investments, turnover, value added, employment, profits, productivity, and innovation.

Textiles in Europe's circular economy

Dernières publications AEE - mar, 11/19/2019 - 11:38

Textiles are fundamental to our society, providing us with clothing, shoes, carpets, curtains, furniture, etc. for homes, offices and public buildings. The textiles industry employs millions of people worldwide, making it among the largest in the world and an important part of Europe’s manufacturing industry. However, textile production and consumption cause significant environmental, climate and social impacts by using resources, water, land and chemicals and emitting greenhouse gases and pollutants. This briefing provides an EU perspective of the environmental and climate pressures from textile production and consumption, and discusses how circular business models and regulation can help move us towards a circular textiles economy.

Private consumption: Textiles EU's fourth largest cause of environmental pressures after food, housing, transport

Faits marquants AEE - mar, 11/19/2019 - 10:00

Consumption of clothing, footwear and household textiles in the European Union (EU) uses annually about 1.3 tonnes of raw materials and more than 100 cubic metres of water per person, according to a European Environment Agency briefing, published today. A wide-scale change towards circular economy in textiles production and consumption is needed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, resource use and pressures on nature.

Fighting the climate emergency? Enter National Development Banks

The EU Emissions Trading System in 2019: trends and projections

Dernières publications AEE - jeu, 10/31/2019 - 14:20

The European Union (EU) Emissions Trading System (ETS) governs about 40 % of total EU greenhouse gas emissions. It sets a cap on emissions from industrial activities (e.g. power and heat production, cement production, iron and steel production and oil refining), as well as aviation. Based on the latest available data, this briefing provides an overview of past and projected emission trends under the EU ETS, and of the balance between the supply of and demand for emission allowances on the EU carbon market.

Climate change: Significant drop in EU emissions in 2018 but further effort needed to reach 2030 target

Faits marquants AEE - jeu, 10/31/2019 - 13:00

The European Union (EU) cut its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2 % in 2018, according to preliminary estimates released today by the European Environment Agency. However, rising energy consumption continues to hamper progress on the share of energy generated by renewable sources and on energy efficiency. As in previous years, the transport sector remains a particular concern with rising GHG emissions, low uptake of renewable energy sources and insufficient reductions of transport fuels’ life-cycle emissions.
