EU to Reduce One-third Green House Gas Emissions: Targets 2020

If the EU takes concrete steps, it can, by 2020 reduce one-third of its greenhouse gas emissions. How? The solution seems simple and the plans desperate — through energy efficiency and renewable energies, as well as with a strong emissions trading system, as WWF informs.

Highlighting the concrete steps the EU should take to cut CO2 emissions, the global conservation organization presented a report. The report claims the emission would be reduced by 33 per cent within the next 15 years, even with a moratorium on nuclear energy. A climate-friendlier Europe will bring the EU huge benefits, including less dependency on foreign sources of energy, cost savings for all sectors of the economy, reduced health costs due to lower pollution, and more job opportunities in the field of renewable energies and energy conservation, the WWF assures.
