- This study analyses comparable reduction efforts according to fundamentally different effort-sharing approaches for the individual industrialised (Annex I) countries for achieving an aggregated total reduction target for Annex I of 30% below 1990 levels. For the EU and Japan, only the more ambitious pledge would be just in line with the comparable effort reduction range. For the United States, their proposed reduction target is less ambitious than the calculated reduction range.
