Resumo: Climate change is a crosscutting, long term, global problem and one of the biggest challenges that humankind is facing. As the fifth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 2013 said, it is clear that climate change is caused by human activity - and more importantly by burning fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, and gas), which emit dangerous greenhouse gases (GHGs). The European Union has sought to be a leader in the international arena in the fight against climate change. For this, the EU has developed a common integrated strategy on energy and climate that aims a low carbon economy as well as a competitive and secure energy. This research is conducting a study of this strategy, specifically the most current energy and climate change Framework for Climate & Energy 2030 policies. First, the aim of the research is to identify whether the political climate model of European integration can become a path to global environmental governance. Second, the historical development of this strategy, its origins and the progressive convergence to its consolidation in the form of an integrated European strategy is discussed. Based on the background analysis of the Single European Act to 2020 Europe Strategy internally, and from the Kyoto Protocol to the Paris Agreement from an external point of view, the dissertation will outline the initiative of EU leadership in this area. For this purpose, it is necessary to make a prospective analysis (SWOT and PESTLE) in which all possible recommendations to be considered for this scenario 2030 will be made according to the Framework for Climate & Energy 2030 policies. From this analysis the main recommendation that emerges is that the EU should support especially small- and medium-sized businesses that are unable to invest great monetary resources in the establishment of an increasing greenhouse-gas-reduced production. As a result, this model could be adopted to other regions as well, for example in South America in MERCOSUR.
