Burden Sharing Agreement Eur Lex



(3) On 10 June 2016, the Commission presented the European Union`s proposal to ratify the Paris Agreement. This legislative proposal is part of the implementation of the EU`s commitment in the Paris Agreement. The Union`s commitment to reducing macroeconomic emissions was confirmed by the planned national contribution of the Union and its Member States, presented to the UNFCCC Secretariat on 6 March 2015. Less frequent compliance checks are recommended, i.e. every five years rather than every year, which reduces administrative burdens for both Member States and the European Commission. There is no direct reporting or other administrative consequences for enterprises, SMEs or micro-enterprises. The proposal continues the current EU burden-sharing mechanism for sectors not covered by the ETS until 2030 and is an integral part of the 2030 framework for climate and energy policy, as well as the Commission`s framework strategy for a sustainable energy union with a forward-looking climate change policy. In particular, it contributes to creating the fourth dimension of the Energy Union to decarbonise the economy. Whereas Member States must ensure that, in such cases, the urgency procedure provided for in the Council`s Rules of Procedure (1) leads rapidly to a balanced sharing of the burdens in a spirit of solidarity; This proposal also transposes the EU`s commitments under the Paris Agreement on climate change. On 10 June 2016, the Commission presented a proposal for the European Union to ratify the Paris Agreement 2. This proposal followed the Commission`s assessment of the Paris Agreement 3rd Council RESOLUTION of 25 September 1995 on burden-sharing for the reception and temporary stay of displaced persons (95/C 262/01) of the Council of the European Union, having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article K.1.
