Abstract
Climate change is currently a global issue faced by human beings. Combating
climate change is a top priority for the EU policy. In 2007 the EU endorsed an integrated
approach to climate and energy policy and committed to transforming the
EU into a highly energy-efficient, low Carbon economy. The EU has long been a
driving force in international negotiations for larger global actions to structure an
effective global climate regime. This paper focuses primarily on examining climate
change law, strategy and practices in the EU. The following core issues are exploited:
What is the concept and impacts of climate change on the EU? What is the
legal framework, decision-making procedure, institutional structure of the EU’s
climate change policy? To what extent the EU’s climate change policy is influenced
by the European Council and the EU’s foreign policy under the Lisbon
Treaty? What is the strategy adopted by EU at the international negotiations on climate change? And what’s the significance and impacts of the EU model of climate
change policy on third countries and international organizations?
