MaxiMiseR project highlights

What was the MaxiMiseR project?

The EU has pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030, and by 80-95% by 2050. 

The Paris Agreement requires all countries to produce mid-century low emissions strategies to show how they'll reach their targets. And even before Paris, EU Member States were supposed to produce Low Carbon Development Strategies(LCDS).

Ensuring long term climate strategies such as LCDS are ambitious and developed with stakeholder input is key to meeting the EU’s emissions reductions goals. 

Helping make these climate plans as strong as possible - and seeing how they can be financed through the EU Emissions Trading System - was the aim of the MaxiMiseR project.  Read more.

The MaxiMiseR project was carried out by WWF's European Policy Office.
