European State of the Climate 2018

The full European State of the Climate 2018 gives a general description of the year as a whole, including a view of the European sector of the Arctic. It illustrates in further detail three longer events in 2018 where there were persistent weather conditions over several months, and explores associated variations in sunshine duration, vegetation and soil moisture, river discharge, wildfires, glaciers and sea ice. Finally, a number of key indicators for climate change are highlighted, placing the events and their impacts into a longer-term global context.

Academia aims to reduce its own CO₂ emissions

Researchers fly all over the world to take part in conferences and exchange ideas face-to-face. And they often do so without thinking about the impact on our climate. But if the oncologist Daniel Helbling has his way, that will soon change. We look at three initiatives from scientists who are keen to improve the sustainability of their own disciplines.

Unequal exposure and unequal impacts: social vulnerability to air pollution, noise and extreme temperatures in Europe

Targeted action is needed to better protect the poor, the elderly and children from environmental hazards like air and noise pollution and extreme temperatures, especially in Europe’s eastern and southern regions. This European Environment Agency (EEA) report warns that the health of Europe’s most vulnerable citizens remains disproportionately affected by these hazards, despite overall improvements in Europe’s environmental quality.

Projekte und Programme zur Emissionsverminderung im Inland

Hersteller und Importeure fossiler Treibstoffe sowie Betreiber fossil-thermischer Kraftwerke sind gemäss CO2-Gesetz dazu verpflichtet, einen Teil der verursachten CO2- Emissionen ganz, respektive teilweise, durch Massnahmen im Inland zu kompensieren. Zur Erfüllung dieser Pflicht können Projekte oder Programme zur Emissionsverminderung im Inland durchgeführt werden. Das Verfahren für die Durchführung und Anrechnung von Emissionsverminderungen aus selbst durchgeführten Projekten oder Programmen der Treibstoffimporteure wird durch diese Mitteilung konkretisiert.
