Greenhouse-gas neutral Germany 2050

With the climate agreement reached at the climate conference in Paris at the end of 2015 (external PDF, 506 KB), the international community committed itself to the target, which is binding under international law, of holding global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels and to making efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The agreement also stipulates that the world must become greenhouse gas-neutral in the second half of the century. In light of the results of the 2015 climate conference in Paris, the Federal Government will adopt a Climate Action Plan 2050 in the summer of 2016.

In order for the long-term climate action plan to find acceptance in society and business, the Federal Government launched a broad-based participatory process in the summer of 2015. Länder, municipalities, associations and citizens are encouraged to propose strategic measures to the Federal Government by which the long-term climate objectives can be reached. The Federal Government will consider these proposals when drafting the Climate Action Plan 2050 and comment on them as appropriate. The Federal Government will then regularly review and update the plan.
