The JRC analysis of the Sustainable Energy Action Plans points out that the CoM signatories’ ambition is to reduce GHG emissions in 2020 by 27%, well above the minimum target of 20%. In European Union Member States, it is estimated that CoM signatories (covering 31% of the EU-28 population in 2014) may represent 31% to the overall 2020 EU-28 GHG emission reduction target. The analysis of the first 315 implementation reports (representing 25.5 million inhabitants) reveals that 23% of the cut in emissions had already been achieved in 2014.
