Press conference by Connie Hedegaard, Member of the EC, on the ratification of the second commitment period 2013-2020 of the Kyoto Protocol on climate change, and on the United Nations climate change conference in Warsaw

Connie Hedegaard, Member of the EC in charge of Climate Action, gave a press conference to present the legislation necessary for the European Union to formally ratify the second commitment period (2013-2020) of the Kyoto Protocol on climate change. The EU, the Member States and Iceland have committed to jointly achieve a 20% reduction in their combined greenhouse gas emissions over the second period compared to the level in 1990 or their other chosen base years. This reduction commitment is consistent with the 2009 'climate and energy package' of legislation and mirrors the package's reduction measures at EU and Member State level.
Besides, the European Union is seeking a balanced package of decisions to advance international climate action for the United Nations climate change conference that will take place on 11-22 November in Warsaw. The decisions need to enhance the implementation of climate measures already agreed, advance work on deepening cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions before 2020 and prepare the ground for the adoption by 2015 of a new legally-binding global climate agreement containing emission commitments by all countries.
