was launched in mid-2023 as an independent progress monitoring initiative that uses an indicator-based framework and scientifically rigorous analysis to help the EU achieve climate neutrality.
ECNO exists to ensure the EU is set up for climate neutrality success by regularly assessing economy-wide, on-the-ground progress and providing an independent check of the EU policy processes that drive it.
ECNO aims to tell a comprehensive story of where the EU stands on its journey to climate neutrality, applying indicators that track structural, real-world changes across 13 building blocks of a climate neutral future.
As an independent observatory, ECNO seeks to promote the uptake of better climate policy monitoring practices by EU institutions to enhance accountability and transparency as we move into a critical era of climate policy implementation.
ECNO is a consortium of leading European research organisations with expertise spanning the fields of climate policy, governance, economics, and finance across the whole economy.
