Britain and Romania commit to tackle climate change

The British and Romanian governments issued a joint statement expressing their long-term commitment to European efforts to tackle climate change, United Press International has reported.

The governments issued a joint statement Wednesday expressing “their commitment to keep average global temperature rises below 2 degrees [Celsius], by reducing EU greenhouse gas emissions by 80-95 percent on 1990 levels by 2050.”

European leaders are debating climate and energy goals for 2030. Existing policy calls for a 20 percent reduction in emissions and a 20 percent gain in renewable energy production by 2020, based on a 1990 baseline.

Both governments called for a “timely agreement” on the 2030 climate and energy framework under consideration by members of the European Union.

The British and Romanian governments said they will facilitate the development of low-carbon and renewable energy opportunities collectively.
