Understanding Potential Pathways towards Net-zero


Ecologic Institute and Noble Studio 2022: Understanding potential pathways towards net-zero. Infographic. In: Velten, Eike Karola et al.: Charting a path to net zero: An assessment of national long-term strategies in the EU.

All EU member states should be clear on the role of emission reductions and removals, and ideally include specific long-term reduction and removal targets. LTSs should provide information about when and how these reductions and removals will be realised. This means strategies must include a description of pathways, including interim targets, to paint a clear picture of what needs to happen in the short- and longer term. This infographic visualizes different pathways of long-term strategies. 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.
