Acting now for a better Health - 30 % Reduction Target for EU Climate Policy (Report)
Our report quantifies the health benefits for Europeans of stronger EU action on climate change for both the EU and different Member States. It reframes the current discussions from climate costs to climate benefits, particularly for people’s health and healthcare systems.
We demonstrate that a 30% emissions reduction target could save public health billions. For the EU as a whole, the anticipated benefits could be as high as €30.5 billion - equivalent to just under 0.2% of EU GDP.
