‘Fit for 57’?

image credit: The EU says it is upgrading its emissions reduction by 2030 to 57%, instead of the 55% that underpins its 'Fit for 55' policy package. This will require additional work and a greater understanding of the regulations.

From FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, Policy Dispatch is a podcast all about the policies that underpin the global energy transition.

The European Commission’s climate chief Frans Timmermans said before leaving to COP27 that the EU’s emissions reduction target “can be increased to 57%”. This news came as EU legislators concluded the revisions of two key pieces of the EU’s climate legislation, the Effort Sharing Regulation and the LULUCF Regulation.



Why are these two pieces of legislation so relevant and what is the state of play of many of the files that are still under negotiation? Should we start calling this climate legislation the ‘Fit for 57’ package?

In this episode, Policy Dispatch host Sam Morgan is joined by FORESIGHT’s podcast producer Anna Gumbau to discuss the latest developments in the EU’s climate policy agenda. Because, even if the energy price crisis continues to take center stage in the Brussels debates, the bloc’s climate agenda continues to advance.

Enjoy the dispatch!

2% increase is a big step. I wonder if they will actually do what is needed to even reach 50% ?

Most of these goals are voluntary and most just don't do anything. It seems we have to find a way to reward those that meet or exceed their goals so others may try to compete and beat them?
