Winter 2014 Newsletter – A Question of Targets

  • Editorial: A Question of Targets
    The imminent public debate about the form and ambition of 2030 targets will be a crucial test of the EU’s stance – those who believe in the case for a wider agenda and multiple targets must not lose their nerve.
  • Enhancing the enforcement of European environmental law

  • Impacts of climate change on European islands
    Islands are particularly vulnerable to climate change due to their direct exposure to its impacts.

  • ‘Bio-based’ – a sustainable way forward for the European economy?
    Europe has considerable potential for transforming biomass wastes and residues into energy, bio-based chemicals and plastics, using advanced conversion technologies. IEEP’s report for the European Parliament highlights the need for environmental safeguards to accompany such developments.
