This paper discusses two plausible policy scenarios that aim at mitigating global warming during the next decades and compares them to a third business as usual scenario. The different policy options underlying these scenarios are evaluated by assessing their direct and indirect economic and environmental effects until the year 2050 by applying the global economic environmental model GINFORS. The simulations with GINFORS show that the climate targets set in the different scenarios can be reached with conventional technologies.
