Climate of Cooperation: Why countries need to cooperate to cut ESR emissions cost-effectively

Sandbag’s new report shows that agreed reform of the Effort Sharing Regulation would only require very limited emissions cuts beyond current efforts, and lets the EU miss its 2030 climate change target. 
However, cooperation between EU countries could rescue the target, and reduce costs for all involved.
The report is summarised below, and available to download for free.
Note: The Effort Sharing Regulation (ESR) is the European climate policy governing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, buildings and transport (other than shipping and aviation).
