EU goes to COP27 seeking more ambitious climate action
The European Union prepares its way to the COP27 climate summit to be held will be held in Shram El Sheikh (Egypt) from November 6 to 18. At this meeting, the EU hopes to convey the message that ambitious climate action brings benefits to the planet, the economy and people.
The ministers, who needed a unanimous agreement, negotiated two points in particular that generated discord: if it was necessary to bet on reinforce the emission reduction plans of the countries (National Determined Contributions) and how to address the ambition to move away from coal for power generation.
Some capitals wanted the EU to send “a strong message about accelerating to get rid of coal” but “not everyone around the table shares it, especially considering the geopolitical situation,” summed up a European source before the meeting.
The level of commitment was also negotiated because “we ask our neighbors to be ambitious, but we also have to do our homework,” added the source.

Finally, it has been found that “All countries must present objectives and ambitious policies and major economies in particular must review and strengthen their Nationally Determined Contributions in time for COP27.”
Remember that the EU continues to legislate on climate matters and that it is prepared “as soon as possible after the conclusions of these negotiations, to update, as appropriate, the National Determined Contributions”.
“The Council recognizes that all countries must improve adaptation efforts while urgently reducing emissions,” add the agreed conclusions.
Also highlighted are the “continued commitments of the EU Member States” to “close the book, turn the page on relentless carbon by phasing out and ending inefficient fossil fuel subsidies to accelerate your energy transition.”
Regarding coal, the Third Vice President of the Spanish Government, Teresa Ribera, declared at the end of the meeting that it is true that some EU countries “They have had to adopt flexible measures with respect to its own commitments” but that this “small deviation” is due to the geopolitical situation and “there is no substantial change with respect to the general commitment” “It is key to explain it well to the rest of the world’s countries,” stressed the also minister for Ecological Transition.

In this sense, the text adopted by the EU indicates that the community block hopes that in 2023 the gap of the unfulfilled promise of moving from rich countries to poor countries will be closed. 100 billion a year for the climate response.
The negotiating mandate comes after the European Parliament passed a resolution last Thursday in which he demanded more climate ambition from the EU and the G20 countries for emission reduction plans in order to aspire to limit the advance of temperatures to 1.5 degrees, compared to the current path of 2.7 degrees.
The European Parliament resolution underlined that Russia’s aggression against Ukraine makes the need to change the global energy system more “urgent” and also called on the rich economies to correct as soon as possible the unfulfilled promise of transferring 100,000 million dollars annually to the countries in development for climate transformation.
