Thematic Actions Plans

Climate Νeutral Τerritories

Objective: to produce territorial evidence on (renewable) energy consumption and production, ecosystem services, biodiversity, and natural resources within European territories and its seas. The new evidence to be created will provide information on the territorial opportunities and challenges that could affect the transition of cities and regions towards climate neutrality by 2050. It will allow to understand possible territorial consequences for cities and regions, following different development pathways towards complete carbon neutrality by 2050.


Focus: it will develop knowledge base on the territorial aspects of green transition towards a climate neutral economy in a broader sense, i.e. considering mobility, spatial planning, consumption, energy and society. This TAP will investigate possibilities to transform existing challenges into opportunities by, inter alia, decreasing carbon emissions; increasing carbon sinks and energy efficiency; becoming more energy self-sufficient and eradicating energy poverty.
