Last updated: 25 October 2019

Climate protection policy in the Czech Republic replaces the National Program to Mitigate the Impact of Climate Change in the Czech Republic in 2004.

It defines the main objectives and measures in the area of ​​climate protection at the national level to ensure meeting the greenhouse gas emission reduction targets (UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Kyoto Protocol, Paris Agreement and European Union Legislation). This strategy defines climate protection goals by 2030, with further efforts to 2050, and it should contribute to the long-term transition to a sustainable low-emission economy of the Czech Republic.

The Czech Republic's climate protection policy focuses on the period from 2017 to 2030 with a view to 2050. Its implementation will be evaluated by the end of 2021 and the update of the Czech Republic's Climate Protection Policy is planned by the end of 2023.

Goals:

Reduce national emissions by 2020 by at least 32 Mt CO2-eq in comparison with 2005

Reduce national emissions by 2030 by at least 44 Mt CO2-eq in comparison with 2005

Pursue the indicative level of 70 Mt CO2-eq of emissions in 2040;

Pursue the indicative level of 39 Mt CO2-eq of emissions in 2050.

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020 compared to 1990

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions at least by 40% by 2030 compared to 1990

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80–95% by 2050 compared to 1990

Additional efforts are made in the End-user sector.

By 2030, implementation of the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council 2010/31/EU on the energy performance of buildings should lead to emissions reduction per unit of the floor area of a building by 25 to 40% compared to 2010.
