40% reduction is a "minimum baseline says IEMA.
On the evening of Thursday 23 October, EU leaders committed that by 2030, greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced by at least 40%, while there will be an increase in energy efficiency and renewables by at least 27%.
IEMA quickly responded to the outcomes and commitments, stating:
“We view the announced commitments as a minimum baseline. Renewed climate leadership is now required from leaders across the EU in preparatory work and build up to secure international agreement at Paris next year. We are disappointed with the UK Government’s position on energy efficiency and call for a step change in political ambition and leadership on Climate Change - this most critical issue of our times”.
