Vatican City State's NDC

The Holy See intended to join others in this effort by taking action at two different levels:

"1. On the one hand, Vatican City State is committed to reducing net emissions to zero before 2050, intensifying efforts at environmental management that have already been in process for some years, and which make possible the rational use of natural resources such as water and energy, energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, reforestation, and the circular economy also in waste management.

2. On the other, the Holy See is committed to promoting education in integral ecology. Political and technical measures must be united with an educational process that favours a cultural model of development and sustainability based on fraternity and the alliance between human beings and the environment.


Even if the State’s contribution to global emissions in 2022 is around 0,0000443%, the Vatican City State is committed to achieving a reduction in emissions in line with the goal of keeping global warming below 2°C, as well as to pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels as foreseen in the Art. 2 of Paris Agreements" (Vatican City State NDC, May 2023).
