OECD Environmental Performance Reviews: Germany 2023
Germany has continued to improve its environmental performance over the past decade.
It has ambitious climate targets with the aim to reach climate neutrality by 2045
and achieve negative emissions after 2050. Nevertheless, Germany will need to further
accelerate climate action, particularly in the buildings and transport sectors, and
address the triple crisis of energy, climate and biodiversity in an integrated and
holistic manner. As part of its energy crisis response, Germany has taken a series
of measures, which are historic in size and scope. They are set to massively accelerate
its green energy transition in the coming years. It is also scaling up its engagement
on climate change adaptation across all government levels and has initiated an ambitious
programme to foster investments in nature-based solutions. This is the fourth OECD
Environmental Performance Review of Germany. It provides 28 recommendations to help
Germany further improve its environmental performance.
