Germany is falling behind in achieving its climate goals. The environmental organization BUND now wants to legally compel the federal government to take effective measures.

Berlin – The German Federation for the Environment and Nature Conservation (BUND) is suing the federal government for failing to meet climate targets in the areas of transport and buildings. This was reported by the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”, the corresponding information was also available from the German Press Agency. In its complaint filed with the Higher Administrative Court of Berlin-Brandenburg, the BUND demands the resolution of the emergency programs, as provided for in the Climate Protection Act.

Germany had not achieved its goal of reducing greenhouse gases by 40 percent by 2020 compared to 1990, and also in 2021. According to preliminary calculations by the Agora Energiewende think tank, this will not be the case in 2022 either. a gap, particularly in the areas of transport and buildings, as already pointed out by the expert council of the Federal Government. The federal government’s climate protection program, which should address this, is still pending.

“We cannot continue to see parts of the federal government ignore their own climate protection goals and reject effective measures for transport and buildings,” said BUND President Olaf Bandt. “Now a political decision is needed to create effective measures for climate protection. If Olaf Scholz’s government is not politically capable or willing to do so, it should be legally bound to do so.” dpa
