About

Luxembourg endorses the Coalition's initiatives to reduce short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions from heavy duty diesel vehicles and engines, municipal solid waste, cooling and refrigeration, and domestic cooking and heating. It will also support the Coalition’s SNAP (supporting national action planning for SLCPs) initiative.

Luxembourg is currently in the process of elaborating a third comprehensive climate action plan focusing mainly at the period of up to 2030, alongside with a strategic long-term outlook in accordance with the Paris Agreement. Furthermore, the Luxembourg government has agreed on a national air quality program targeting fine particulate matter and other pollutant emissions.

The Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Xavier Bettel, said, "From Pole to Pole we see human-induced climate change affecting our planet and our lives. Science tells us: unless there are immediate and large scale reductions in ALL greenhouse gas emissions, including short-lived pollutants such as methane, limiting global warming to close to 1.5º will be beyond reach. We urge ambitious and efficient action by the public, private, and all other sectors of society to make this a decade of action. You can count on Luxembourg's continued full commitment to climate action."

Luxembourg supports CCAC projects in developing countries as a donor to the CCAC Trust Fund. Details about Luxembourg's contributions and pledges can be found here.
