The Paris climate summit (COP21) is fast approaching and important elements of a possible agreement are emerging. What is already certain is that any agreement will be as much political and economic as it is environmental. So what are the considerations that most impact decarbonisation policies? Does a consistent picture emerge?

Thomas Spencer gave a presentation on the contributions (INDCs) submitted by the parties ahead of COP21. In a subsequent panel debate Simone Mori gave the perspective of industry and Jos Delbeke a point of view from the Commission.
