Climate

The EU is the first coalition of countries to have enshrined net zero by 2050 into law. The European Commission has proposed ‘Fit for 55’, a far-reaching set of policies, to meet this goal, and in the coming months and years, member-states and the European Parliament will negotiate its final form. At the same time, the EU needs to convince countries beyond Europe – first and foremost the US and China – to upgrade their own climate policies in line with the Paris Agreement. In the coming decades climate and energy policy will reshape the global economy and redefine geopolitical fault lines.
