Consultation on addressing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and LULUCF in the context of the 2030 EU climate and energy framework

EU

18/06/2015

In October 2014, EU leaders agreed upon a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of at least 40% by 2030 compared to 1990 together with other building blocks of the 2030 policy framework for climate and energy, as proposed by the European Commission in January 2014. The European Commission was invited to establish policy on how to include land use, land use change and forestry into the 2030 greenhouse gas mitigation framework. This presents an opportunity to reflect on how best to deal with the emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use.

Consultation on the preparation of a legislative proposal on the effort of Member States to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to meet the European Union's greenhouse gas emission reduction commitment in a 2030 perspective

EU

18/06/2015

The Effort Sharing Decision sets greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for each Member State for the sectors not covered by the EU Emissions Trading System. Its scope currently covers some 55 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the EU and includes greenhouse gas emissions from sources such as CO2 emissions from road transport, heating of buildings, small-scale industry and so-called non-CO2 emissions from agriculture and waste. The ESD does not include emissions or removals from land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF). Each Member State has an emission reduction or limitation commitment for 2020 under this Decision which varies between -20% and +20% as compared to its 2005 GHG emissions. Taken together, these commitments correspond to an EU-wide reduction in 2020 of around 10% compared to 2005 for the sectors covered by the ESD.
