UK lobbies EU for 'light touch' energy goals

February 2015
ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Feb2015, Issue 480, p8
The article discusses the lobbying efforts of the British and Czech Republic governments urging the European Union (EU) to take a strategic approach on the governance and enforcement of climate goals in 2015. The governments are expecting a regime supporting an agreement among member states to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 that is not demanding and non-legislative. They also urge the EU to give more attention to carbon capture and storage (CCS).
