Israel upgrades climate ambition

New plan comes at the end of a decade where the energy sector focus has been on developing the country’s offshore gas resources

Israel has submitted a plan to the United Nations framework convention on climate change (UNFCCC) to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 85pc, from 2015 levels by 2050, in the last days of right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's administration. “By so doing, Israel takes its place alongside other developed countries in the global fight against climate change,” read a joint statement from the key ministries at the time. Israel has set and missed clean energy goals before—including one envisaging 10pc of electricity being sourced from renewables by last year—and has been a notable laggard in the domain given its ample solar resources and a well-established clean technology sector.
