Emissions Reduction Target
Increase in Renewable Energy
Emissions by Source
Draft to be revised by Coordination Center for Climate Issues:
Hamburg’s goal is to reduce emissions 55% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The city is committed to cutting 4 million tons of C02 emissions over the next 10 years through various measures. The city is decarbonizing its district heating by banning new oil heating systems in 2022 and requiring solar systems on new buildings by 2023. The city administration will act as a role model, with public buildings constructed and renovated in an exemplary energy-efficient manner.
Hamburg’s Climate Action Plan sets concrete reduction targets across its mobility, industry, commerce and household sectors. Climate protection responsibilities are tasked across the entire administration and coordinated by the Ministry for Environment and Energy. The plan includes a wide range of measures, set as legal requirements, and an investment of nearly 2 billion euros through 2030.
