Abstract

Presentation of non-energy emission pathways in line with the new UNFCCC Shared Socio-Economic Pathways (SSP) scenario characteristics and the evaluation of the multi-gas pathways against various temperature thresholds and carbon budgets (1.5 °C and 2.0 °C) over time, and additionally against a 1.5 °C carbon budget in 2100, followed by a discussion of the results in the context of the most recent scientific literature in this field. Presentation of the non-energy GHG mitigation scenarios calculated to complement the energy-related CO 2 emissions derived in Chap. 8.
