Rapid action needed on climate financing to meet low-carbon targets
European countries need to rapidly step up efforts and define their investment needs and plans to match their objectives in shifting to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy. This is the key finding of a stocktaking briefing published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) today, which also stresses the need for clear information on investment needs and priorities to attract private finance.
The EEA briefing ‘Financing Europe’s low carbon, climate resilient future,’ says that the smooth transition to a low-carbon future poses a major investment challenge that depends on a substantial redirection of finance flows towards more sustainable investments. The briefing is based on a new study prepared for the EEA, which found that only a few European countries have turned their climate and energy objectives into concrete investment needs and plans to date. Only Belgium, the Czech Republic, Estonia, France, and to some extent, Germany, appear to have a national approach or strategy in place to track spending related to climate mitigation and adaption.
Meeting climate and energy targets is an investment challenge
The EU has estimated there will be a need to invest around an additional €177 billion per year from 2021-2030. To close this gap, substantial funding — a doubling of current investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency — will be needed. This will require mobilising both public and private funds. These investments will also provide significant additional benefits, in terms of new jobs, reduced energy poverty, increased energy security and improved air quality, according to the EEA briefing.
