In July 2016, the European Commission made a proposal for the Effort Sharing Regulation which sets national emission reduction targets for the EU Member States for sectors including transport, agriculture, buildings and waste. The EU has agreed to 30% emissions cuts in these sectors by 2030.
While the proposal offers clear benefits for citizens such as cleaner air, more comfortable homes and better livable cities, it includes a number of potential loopholes that could risk the delivery of the EU’s climate objectives.
