Climate Adaptation · Energy Efficiency
The climate is changing globally. As it changes, so do people’s living conditions. Germany is no exception. Experts expect far-reaching consequences for the environment, economy and society if we do not at least succeed in keeping global climate change under control. Even if we manage to reach the ambitious EU target of limiting the rise in global average temperature to less than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, we will have to adapt to the impacts of climate change. Modern climate policy is therefore based on two pillars: prevention of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to the impacts of climate change that are already unavoidable.
