Europe is the most progressive region in the world in terms of policies that address climate change.
However, the energy and electricity mixes within the individual EU countries vary widely. France largely relies on nuclear energy, while the coal is dominant in Poland.
Such a diversion creates clashes within the bloc, which can undermine the progression towards the implementation of the green agenda within the Union.
The European oil majors such as BP and Shell have pledged more ambitious climate targets than their American rivals such as Exxon Mobil and Chevron.
