Next government needs emergency programme for climate protection – The Greens

Green Party

Germany’s next government must introduce an “Emergency Programme for Climate Protection” to reach the goal of reducing greenhouse gases by 40 percent by 2020, write several Green Party and Green parliamentary group members in a paper seen by the Clean Energy Wire. This should include putting a price on CO₂, making motors clean and drives climate-neutral, making heating climate-friendly and affordable, pushing climate protection in the agriculture sector, and “taking industry serious as a partner for more climate protection”. The paper’s authors are Annalena Baerbock, Anton Hofreiter, Oliver Krischer, and Lisa Badum.

See the CLEW factsheet Germany's greenhouse gas emissions and climate targets for more information.
