Commenting on today’s 2050 Low Carbon roadmap published by the European Commission, Energy and Climate Change Secretary The Rt Hon Chris Huhne MP said:
“The 2050 Low Carbon Roadmap must be a first step towards Europe setting a clear, cost-effective and ambitious plan to decarbonise its economy.
“We need a pathway that stimulates jobs and growth as well as reduces Europe’s dependence on fossil fuels from other countries.
“The roadmap shows that Europe’s current 20% target for 2020 isn’t enough or cost effective and shows that Europe’s already got the policies and the tools to cut emissions by 25% at home. This makes the case for going to 30% stronger and more urgent.”
