Argentina Sets CO2 Emissions Target

(Energy Analytics Institute, 29.Sep.2021) — Argentina presented its second Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) plan in December 2020 to update its commitment to limiting greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation goals. The South American country’s national mitigation goal is “absolute, unconditional, and applicable to all sectors of the economy,” according to details published by the government regarding climate change.

For now, Argentina aims to not exceed net emission of 359 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCOe2) by 2030, which would represent an emissions reduction of 19% versus a historical peak achieved in 2007, and a reduction of 26% versus the country’s previous NDC.
