European nations call for carbon emission reductions

European nations call for carbon emission reductions
The European Union (EU) has called on other developed nations to increase their commitment to reducing carbon emissions.

With representatives of nearly 100 countries meeting at the United Nations Climate Change Convention in Bali, EU leaders pledged to increase their member's commitment to cutting their carbon impact if other industrialised nations agreed to follow their lead, AFP reported.

An EU climate change official argued that all developed countries should aim to increase their targets for reducing emissions to 30 per cent by 2020.

"We are not aiming for a low-carbon economy for the European Union alone - we are aiming for a low-carbon economy for the globe," said Nuno Lacasta, a climate change expert from Portugal, the current chair of the organisation.

"Under a new global climate agreement, for which we hope this Bali conference will agree to launch negotiations, it is actually necessary for developed countries to cut their collective emissions by 30 per cent by 2020," he added.

The conference on Bali aims to agree a replacement for the main international accord on climate change, the Kyoto Protocol, which is set to expire in 2012.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18381103-ADNFCR
