Publication of EPA's Greenhouse Gas emissions projections for the period 2020-2040
These will form part of the discussions at the EPA Climate Conference taking place tomorrow (23rd June). They show Ireland is projected to have exceeded its 2013-2020 EU Effort Sharing Decision target by 12.2 Mt CO2 eq, but that it can meet its current EU 2021-2030 target with full implementation of the measures in the 2019 Climate Action Plan. This would result in a 2% per annum emissions reduction pathway from 2021 to 2030.
