The European Union Climate Change Committee agreed October 17 to set annual limits on GHG emissions produced by sectors not covered under the emissions trading system, including agriculture, road transport, constriction, and waste. The agreement came as part of the committee’s effort to achieve a 10 percent reduction in emissions outside of the trading system by 2020 compared to 2005. The Committee’s decision will become effective if the European Parliament does not challenge it during a three-month review period.
