Press conference by Connie Hedegaard on the publication of 2011 Eurobarometer on public attitudes to climate change

97 views

On 7 October 2011, Connie Hedegaard, Member of the EC in charge of Climate Action, presented the publication of the 2011 Eurobarometer on public attitudes to climate change. The annual report on the EU's progress towards meeting its Kyoto Protocol target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions was released. The European Environment Agency (EEA) also published its latest analysis of greenhouse gas trends in the EU. These reports highlight the substantial progress the EU is making in breaking the link between carbon emissions and economic growth. By 2010 the EU succeeded in cutting emissions by 15.5% since 1990 while the economy grew by 41% over the same period. Emissions fell for six consecutive years up to and including 2009. The EU-15 remains firmly on course to meet its 8% emission reduction target under the Kyoto Protocol, and is most likely to overachieve it.
