This article draws from the Executive Summary of “Pathways to Deep Decarbonization in Italy”, the Italian Country Report which was published within the “Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP)”, an initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI). This report contributes to the national debate on climate-change mitigation, and the importance of deep decarbonization, by examining three alternative pathways that could reduce Italian CO2 emissions by at least 40% in 2030 and 80% in 2050, compared to 1990. The research for the Country Report for Italy “Pathways to deep decarbonization in Italy” was conducted jointly by teams at the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA) and the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM).
