An Overview on Current Climate Policies in the European Union and its Member States

The ENTRACTE research project is aiming to analyse the European climate policy portfolio with special emphasis on the role of interactions between its different parts. The project’s ultimate goal is to provide pragmatic guidance to policy makers for designing effective, cost efficient and politically and legally feasible climate policy portfolios. This report on the status quo of European Union (EU) climate politics takes stock of currently implemented policies and highlights what progress has been made so far. It thus gives a first indication of the effectivity of different member state’s policy bundles and highlights interactions between different countries’ policies, where these are evident.
