Adaptation to climate change
Adapting to climate change means taking action to adjust to its present and future impacts.
EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)
A ‘cap and trade’ system to reduce emissions via a carbon market.
Fluorinated greenhouse gases
Fluorinated gases (‘F-gases’) are very powerful greenhouse gases found in everyday products such as refrigerators or air conditioning.
Carbon capture, use and storage
Reducing emissions is not enough. We also have to capture carbon that is already in the atmosphere.
Sustainable carbon cycles
Carbon is the atom of life, of our societies and economies. It is part of our DNA, the food we eat, the products we use every day, the fuels that power our homes, vehicles and factories, the materials we use to build our cities
Effort sharing: Member States' emission targets
Sharing the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in key sectors.
Funding for climate action
How the EU is investing in a climate-friendly future and making polluters pay.
Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities.
European Climate Change Programme
Established in 2000 to help identify the best policies to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
