CO₂ Targets

According to the German Ministry for the Environment the emission of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) in Germany is to be reduced by 40% until 2020 and by 80% to 95% by 2050 compared to 1990 emission levels. Our estimates of future CO2-emissions are based on these goals. We assume that CO2-emissions will be reduced to the same degree as other GHGs and that there will be an overall reduction of 90% by 2050.
