New EEA Report: Overview of reported national policies and measures on climate change mitigation in Europe in 2015

A new technical report published today by the European Environmental Agency (EEA) presents a synthesis of the information on climate change mitigation policies and measures (PaMs) reported in 2015 by Member States under the European UnionMonitoring Mechanism Regulation. The report aims to provide an overview of the main characteristics of the PaMs implemented, adopted or planned by Member States, such as their objective, type, targeted sectors, entities responsible for their implementation, etc.

The report is based on the submissions, by 25 June 2015, of 20 Member States. These reports were subject to quality control (QC) by the European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM). Nineteen Member States subsequently revised and resubmitted their reports. For the eight Member States that did not submit a report on their climate PaMs before 25 June 2015 or that did not use the online questionnaire, the most recent submissions on PaMs before 2015 (i.e. from 2013 or 2014) were used.
