On July 5, the EU Parliament rejected, by a vote of 347 to 258, a resolution calling for tougher GHG emissions reduction targets for the EU. The resolution proposed the EU cut its GHG emissions 25% from 1990 levels by 2020 through internal reductions, with an overall reduction target of 30% through purchases of offsets from projects in developing countries. The current EU emissions reduction target is a 20% cut from 1990 levels by 2020.
