Germany’s new coalition government falls short on climate and energy – E3G
The new coalition treaty of CDU/CSU and SPD falls short on climate and energy policy, write Alexander Reitzenstein and Sabrina Schulz in a background briefing for E3G. They analyse treaty provisions and look at key political events since the swearing-in of the new cabinet, such as the chancellor’s first speech in parliament. “If Angela Merkel’s speech outlining the new coalition government’s agenda is any indication, climate policy will not be a priority for Germany over the next four years,” they write.
