This chapter discusses how the EU is engaging in a kind of climate change unilateralism in its attempts to extend the global reach of its ‘domestic’ climate change law. The EU's climate change unilateralism is ‘contingent’ in the sense that the global extension of EU climate change law depends upon there being no adequate international agreement or third country climate action in place. The EU's strategy of contingent unilateralism is expected to alter the background conditions for national and international action on climate change. In a best case scenario it could encourage individual states to pursue more effective climate action in the sectors concerned.

Keywords:   European Union, environmental law, environmental policy, climate change unilateralism
