Civil society demands emergency programme climate protection 2020

DNR / BUND / WWF Germany

Friends of the Earth Germany (BUND), WWF Germany and other environmental and development NGOs in the umbrella organisation DNR have presented a proposal for Germany to reach its 2020 goals. The emergency climate protection programme includes concrete measures, including cutting coal-fired power generation capacity in half by 2020, which it says is essential to reach the target. Expansion of renewable capacity should be accelerated, energy efficiency improved, and the mobility transition pushed forward, for example by setting a deadline to phase out the combustion engine through “a clear regulatory framework by the federal government”.
