Accelerating climate action in the EU and Member States through the Fit for 55 package and National Planning Processes
In July, the European Commission presented the “Fit for 55 package” which aims to revise the EU’s climate and energy legislation to implement its new 2030 climate target of net 55% emission reduction.

Currently, Member States are developing their position on the package which needs a coherent and comprehensive approach. In an effort to help Member States in developing their positions, CAN Europe is organising an event to bring together high-level speakers to show how the Fit for 55 package can further increase the EU’s climate ambition and accelerate the energy transition.

In addition, this event will host the launch of Climate Analytics’ recent research on 1.5°C compatible emission reduction pathways for the EU and nine Member States. Their report illustrates how the 1.5°C target is still within our reach. Panelists from Member States and civil society representatives will discuss how national plans, such as National Energy and Climate Plans and National Long Term Strategies, should be updated to pave the way for 1.5°C compatible policies for European countries.
