Quotes

Connie Hedegaard, Commissioner for Climate Action, commented: "the eu climate action commissioner is very proud that the 28 eu leaders, despite economic uncertainty and other severe international crises, were able to get their act together on this pressing climate challenge. a binding 40% co2 reduction effort domestically in europe is not an easy task. it can only be achieved through a major transformation in all parts of the society. that is why the eu leaders' decision to adopt the commission's proposal is an ambitious and important step forward. important not only to europe and the europeans, but also to the rest of the world. we have sent a strong signal to other big economies and all other countries: we have done our homework, now we urge you to follow europe's example."
"the eu leaders last week decided to continue the ambition and reach at least 40 percent (cut of emissions) by 2030. that's why it is encouraging that member states have decided to use most of their current ets revenues to invest in climate and energy and continue the transformation to a low-carbon economy" EU Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard said in a statement
During her India visit in September, European Union Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard had said, "the way we so far discussed it ... developed countries must commit others (developing nations), they can commit if they want to... we just need to adjust the way we talk about cbdr" she had told reporters here
