Europe is leading in reducing energy intensity and emissions

The European economy is substantially less energy-intensive and less CO2 -intensive than the Chinese, Russian or American economies, while the European share of global CO2 emissions has fallen to just 10%.

Europe has shown global leadership in reducing energy intensity and emissions in the past — and must continue to do so. All countries will have to show similar commitments to ensure the Paris Agreement is fully implemented.
