The European Union’s greenhouse gas emissions fell by 1.3 per cent between 2011 and 2012, largely due to reductions in transport and a growing proportion of energy from renewable sources, a report by the European Environment Agency (EEA) has shown.
The figure puts the EU within reach of its 20 per cent reduction target, with eight years to go until the 2020 deadline.
EU emissions are now 19.2 per cent below their 1990 levels.
