Set of conclusions adopted at a meeting of the Council of the European Union on 9 March 2023, focusing on climate and energy diplomacy.

Further information:

The conclusions reaffirm that climate and energy diplomacy is a core component of the European Union's (EU) foreign policy, and stress the determination to engage and work with partners worldwide to implement the Paris Agreement, limit the global temperature increase to 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels, support the most vulnerable countries in adapting to climate change effects, and increase collective climate finance.

They also reaffirm the engagement of EU’s external energy policy to support, intensify and accelerate the global energy transition as a crucial element towards achieving climate neutrality so that it is inclusive, just and ensures energy security and universal access to safe, sustainable and affordable energy.

This set of conclusions was adopted by the Council of the European Union on 9 March 2023. This year features relevant global initiatives such as the Climate Ambition Summit and the political phase of the Global Stocktake at the UNFCCC COP28 summit.
