The European Environment Agency published two reports October 24 finding that greenhouse gas emissions from European Union countries continued to decline in 2011 and that the bloc should easily meet its 2008-2012 Kyoto Protocol target, but that it will fall short of its 2020 target unless it undertakes additional measures. The Approximated EU Greenhouse Gas Inventory: Early Estimates for 2011 confirmed that EU emissions dropped 2.5 percent in 2011 compared to 2010, but Greenhouse Gas Emission Trends and Projections in Europe 2012 predicted that Italy and Spain will miss their individual targets.
