The EU targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from Polish economic perspective

Jakub Piecuch


Member States of the European Union, in order to become more competitive and advanced in the research and development process, launched in 2010 a strategy for sustainable growth, called the Europe 2020. Out of the five ambitious objectives – on employment, innovation, education, social inclusion and climate challenges, the last one seems to be the most controversial. In the countries where energy production is mostly based on fossils fuels, the use of renewable energy sources has just started and the way to developed economy sill lies ahead of them, strategy 2020 seems to stop economic progress. The perfect example of such a country is Poland. This publication provides an overview of the consequences of the EU climate and energy policy upon the economic situation in Poland.
