This document forms part of 2° Investing Initiative’s response to the European Commission consultation on the draft delegated regulation for minimum standards for climate benchmarks.
Among other solutions for improving the benchmarks, it proposes:
- an independent process for evaluating the effects of policy to date
- more rigorous safeguards for managing conflicts of interest
- broader consideration of citizens’ wants and needs
- an agenda based on existing scientific evidence on ways to reduce emissions and improve the sustainability of the EU economy
