A report commissioned by Friends of the Earth Europe that was authored and compiled for them by Dr Doerte Fouquet. It gives the background to the two legislative proposals that will direct Europe's policy on emission reductions until 2020. These are the Effort Sharing Proposal and the amended Emission Trading Scheme (ETS).

Within the report is laid out how better compliance can be integrated into the current process. This includes specific direct compliance to annual linear reduction targets and penalty provisions against member states. A call is also made for an Independent European Emission Abatement Agency.
