Envrionment Council, 2977th meeting: extracts from the joint press conference by Andreas Carlgren, Swedish Minister for Environment and President in Office of the Council, Elena Espinosa Mangana, and Stavos Dimas

104 views

With only two weeks to go until the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, EU Environment Ministers gathered in Brussels for an extra Council meeting under the Swedish presidency. The ministers were expected to conduct a final joint review of the positions and strategies ahead of the climate conference of December 2009 in Copenhagen. In their October 2009 meeting, the EU environment ministers established a clear mandate for negotiation that was later confirmed by heads of state and government at the European Council. It contains a 30 per cent emissions reduction as a lever to get others to make sufficient offers, as well as money on the table, both immediately after Copenhagen and in the long term. The EU has also set the long-term goal of reducing emissions by 80–95 per cent by 2050. Andreas Carlgren, Swedish Minister for Environment and President in Office of the Council chaired the meeting. Elena Espinosa Mangana, Spanish Minister for Environment, rural and maritime affairs, and Stavros Dimas, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, also took part to the conference.
