Press Release: Governments plan to miss EU climate goals – analysis

A new climate ranking shows that EU governments’ plans to cut pollution from transport, Europe’s biggest emitter, will fail to meet their own 2030 emissions targets. Only the top 3, the Netherlands, the UK and Spain, scored above 50% in the ranking of draft national energy and climate plans compiled by Transport & Environment (T&E). Europe’s largest economy, Germany, is 15th, setting itself up to pay billions of euro to other countries for missing the EU’s 2030 emissions goals.
