On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) IKEM created a report that illustrates why a federal climate law is necessary and how it could be designed. The project commissioned by the BMUB created the conceptual basis for legally binding mitigation policies at the federal level in Germany.
Establishing climate protection targets via federal law would also be in line with constitutional and European law and should be accompanied by effective measure ensuring implementation, compliance and monitoring. The latter could be achieved through an operational Climate Protection Plan for the Federal Government and its administration as it could engender more flexible options for taking action while being closely interlinked with the KSG.
