EU Climate Change and Energy Package

27 May 2009 #SMMT News

The European Commission presented a series of proposals in January 2008 as a legislative response to the political commitments made by EU governments in March 2007 on energy and climate change targets, including to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020 and increasing renewable energy use by 20% by 2020. After consideration by the Council of the European Union and European Parliament in “Trialogue” negotiations, a legislative text was sent to the European Parliament for its first reading debate and vote on 16th and 17th December 2008.
