Abstract: Climate change is a global challenge that requires a responsible attitude and taking concrete action not only at European, but at global level as well. A realistic approach to this phenomenon requires the cooperation of all international actors in order to identify the optimal course of action and the necessary instruments. The CEE-4 countries, as Member States of the European Union, are involved responsibly in this international effort, and must act swiftly, both to combat the causes of climate change and to mitigate the effects. In this article, we will analyze the energy policies assumed by the CEE-4 countries on their fight against climate change. Therefore, for the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania, the constituent elements of the integrated national energy and climate change plans will be analyzed. Also, we will examine the national objectives and contributions to the achievement of the EU targets in the field of combating climate change. Given the current goals set up by the Green Deal, this paper will address the policies in the field of transport, renewable energy, energy efficiency, as well as the directions to be followed in order to achieve future targets in all analyzed CEE-4 countries.
