Environment ministry wants to fix sectoral targets as CO2 budgets in Climate Action Law

Tagesspiegel Background

Germany’s environment ministry plans to use the concept of CO2 budgets in next year’s much-anticipated Climate Action Law, reports Nora Marie Zaremba in Tagesspiegel Background. A ministry spokesperson told the publication that it wants to define the emission reduction targets for various economic sectors in terms of CO2 budgets. This would not affect the final targets but would enable the publication of yearly budgets. The ministry said it had decided to use the budget concept in the climate action law because it was also used at EU level.
