Highlights – Key Figures on Climate France and Worldwide 2013 Edition

29 March 2013 - Special issues - By : Frédéric OURADOU / Florine WONG / Daniel DELALANDE

By Frédéric OURADOU, Florine WONG, Daniel DELALANDE and Romain Morel

The 2013 edition of “Key Figures on Climate” has been prepared within the context of the 18th Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP18) held in Doha from 26 November to 7 December 2012.

This latest version has been slightly revised from the 2012 edition. The layout of certain parts has been changed and some new indicators have replaced less relevant ones. This publication, through its organization and the choice of covered topics, aims to inform the widest audience possible about climate change, its mechanisms, causes and effects as well as international mechanisms established to limit it.

The panorama compiled in the five parts of this document is sometimes based on several sources, some of which are now relatively old but authoritative (e.g. IPCC 2007), and whose perimeters may vary according to the nature, origin and availability of information collected.

    European Carbon Certification: the unlikely alliance

    The future European carbon certification framework is under intense debate. The first meeting of the expert group in charge of supporting the Commission has raised criticisms on the composition and mandate of this group, and the discussions have taken an unexpected turn by achieving the feat of bringing NGOs and CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) industrialists to an agreement against natural carbon sinks, those of our forests or our agricultural soils. Where does this unlikely alliance come from?

    Net Zero Industry Act: Europe in the race for cleantech

    The European Union still has a lot of work to do. Yesterday the European Commission published its Net Zero Industry Act, a piece of its response to the American Inflation Reduction Act, a necessary but still insufficient building block to keep the European Union in global cleantech race. It will also have to complete a number of directives and regulations to deliver its Green Deal. The EU election in 2024 is fast approaching, time is of the essence.
