After having agreed in the European Council of December 2019 on transforming the European Union to climate neutrality by 2050, the next step requires adjusting the 2030 targets on climate and energy accordingly.

This Research Brief focuses on the effort sharing (ES) sector, which covers all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are neither included in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) nor covered under “land use and land use change”1. Starting from the Effort Sharing Decision of 2018, this Brief frames the issue in the broader context of global emission budgets that are compatible with the Paris Agreement climate targets and considers criteria for allocating the respective EU budget among the EU-27.
