COP24: the takeaways for Europe

Date: Tuesday, 29 January 2019 18:30 - 21:00

Venue: Permanent Representation of the Netherlands to the EU

The 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP24) successfully concluded in Katowice last month with the adoption of a clear rulebook to implement the Paris Agreement on climate change. The EU plays an instrumental role in climate diplomacy and pushed for higher ambition in making the Paris Agreement operational. Furthermore, just before COP24, the Commission adopted a vision for a climate-neutral Europe by mid-century.

So what will be the main COP24 takeaways for Europe? How will they impact the EU's strategy for long-term emission reductions? And knowing that transport emissions are such an important part of the climate problem, how can rail help be part of the climate solution?

Join us on 29 January 2019 as we explore these questions and more during an event co-organised with Dutch Railways NS and kindly hosted by the Dutch Permanent Representation to the EU.

We are delighted to have DG CLIMA Director Artur Runge-Metzger to kick off the event with a debrief from COP24. We will also hear from NS CEO Roger van Boxtel on the role railways should play, including some inspiring green initiatives implemented by NS, and continue the discussion in a high-level panel debate including the European Commission, European Parliament and rail sector representatives.
