ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Nov2009, Issue 418, p39
The article reports on the performance of the European Union (EU)-15 countries against their greenhouse gas emissions target under the Kyoto Protocol. Analysis by the European Environment Agency (EEA) showed that Austria is the only one of the older EU-15 countries at risk of missing its target. A 13.1% reduction in emissions should have been managed by the group. The targets are expected to be met through domestic policies in France, Germany, Greece, Sweden and Great Britain.
