On March 15, the Environment Council will be held in Brussels.
EU Ministers are expecting to adopt conclusions on the follow-up to the Copenhagen climate conference (7-19 December 2009). It will also discuss for the first time the proposed regulation setting CO2 emissions standards for light commercial vehicles, which is of critical importance in the context of reducing greenhouse gases from sectors not covered by the EU emissions trading scheme.
The Council is also expected to adopt conclusions on biodiversity that will set a new headline target for the protection of species within the EU until 2020 and define its vision for protecting biodiversity until 2050.
