Greenhouse gas emission targets in Europe under the Kyoto Protocol (2008-2012) relative to base-year emissions
In connection with Council Decision 2002/358/EC, the Council of Environment Ministers and the Commission have, in a joint statement, agreed to take into account inter alia the assumptions in Denmarks statement to the Council Conclusions of 1617 June 1998 relating to base-year emissions in 2006. In 2006, it was decided to postpone a decision on this until after all Community and Member State initial reports have been reviewed under the Kyoto Protocol. Croatias base-year emissions include an additional 3.5 Mt CO2-eq, in accordance with Decision 7/CP.12 of the Conference of the Parties under the UNFCCC.
