11 Abatement cost € per tCO 2 e Global GHG abatement cost curve beyond business-as-usual – 2030 Note:The curve presents an estimate of the maximum potential of all technical GHG abatement measures below €60 per tCO 2 e if each lever was pursued aggressively. It is not a forecast of what role different abatement measures and technologies will play.
