The EU Climate Policy Tracker
This website presents up-to-date developments in climate and energy policies across the 27 EU member states. With a uniquely developed scoring method, it provides results in aggregated scores on a scale A to G, for all member states, at EU level, and for different economic sectors. The 2050 goal of near total decarbonisation sets the benchmark for an ‘A’ rating.
The tracker is a resource for those seeking information, a means of sharing best practice, and a way of holding policymakers to account. In 2011 we updated our initial rating from November 2010.
The findings from 2010 showed that the average score across the EU was a disappointing ‘E’. Looking at the developments in 2011, we can see that there has been considerable activity in many countries, though the overall scoring has generally remained constant: positive actions are counteracted by negative developments or budget cuts.
