This short report presents a systematic consideration of equity in emissions pathways at the level of the European Union. The study starts from a framework of international environmental law principles that inform national fair shares and from principles that are highlighted in European Climate Law. Building from this normative position, allocation approaches that can be considered ‘fair’ are described and indicators that allow their operationalization are identified. The implications of the various fairness approaches for the EU are quantified and compared with stylistic European climate mitigation pathways.
