The Sovereign Emission Rights Framework is a special report prepared by Sandbag as part of its response to the European Commission stakeholder consultation on the 2015 international climate change agreement. In the runup to the 2015 Climate Conference, our new report challenges policymakers to commence in earnest a public debate about the way international mitigation efforts should be equitably shared between countries under a 2 degree target. To help restart that debate we present our own effort sharing model, and challenge the existing approaches by which Europe and other major emitters have currently defined their equitable emissions pathways.
The report is accompanied by an interactive Sovereign Emissions Rights Calculator.
Since publication these numbers have been reprised in light of the 5th IPCC report (see our blog)
