After being a high performer in last year’s CCPI, Lithuania drops 10 places to 21st, and is now among the medium-performing countries. Lithuania receives a high rating in the Renewable Energy category, with a medium in GHG Emissions and Climate Policy and a low in Energy Use.
No clear plan for coal and gas phase-out
The CCPI experts criticise the country’s weak strategy for GHG emissions reduction from the transport sector and they demand more focus on public transport development. Thus far, Lithuania has no clear plan for coal and gas phase-out. More-concrete targets are especially demanded for the gas phase-out.
The experts also demand more state action to decarbonise the industry sector. Whereas there are policies for forest and peat protection, and a national target for afforestation, the GHG reduction policies in the agriculture sector are weak.
The following national experts agreed to be mentioned as contributors for this year’s CCPI:
