Puzzle Pieces for Charting a Path to Net-zero Emissions
Ecologic Institute and Noble Studio 2022: Puzzle pieces for charting a path to net-zero emissions. Infographic. In: Velten, Eike Karola et al.: Charting a path to net-zero: An assessment of national long-term strategies in the EU.
Preparing and then adopting a robust and sufficiently detailed long-term climate strategy is a crucial step. These strategies should include pathways that identify the necessary changes in the main emitting sectors and the economy as a whole. The plans need to take into consideration the specific national starting conditions and include economic, technical and social aspects, as well as other long-term objectives (e.g., adaptation needs or biodiversity goals). This infographic shows puzzle pieces that should be considered when developing strategies for moving toward net-zero emissions. It's part of the report "Charting a Path to Net Zero. An assessment of national long-term strategies in the EU." The report presents the findings from an assessment of 22 long-term strategies (LTSs) of the EU Member States available as of March 2022. It is complemented by a briefing that summarizes the key findings and recommendations.
The infographic has been developed by Ecologic Institute and Noble Studio on behalf of the European Climate Foundation.
