Strongly supporting GHG emissions targets

InfluenceMap Comment:

Supporting EU 2030 GHG emissions targets (Business Green, October 2014)

Extract from Source:

The UK's CBI today became the latest leading business organisation to call for a binding emissions reduction target that would require the EU to cut emissions 40 per cent against 1990 levels by 2030 [...] CBI Deputy Director-General Katja Hall said the group wanted to see a binding emissions reduction target, but was opposed to proposals to impose clean technology deployment targets on member states. [...] "A single binding target of a 40 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, with member states reaching this in the most appropriate way to suit their national circumstances, would be the best outcome.

Strongly supporting GHG emissions targets

InfluenceMap Comment:

Supporting the UK GHG emissions targets (Business Green, March 2017)

Extract from Source:

However, the CBI's overarching goal is unequivocal: full compliance with UK carbon targets in a way that builds a more resilient economy and bolsters competitiveness in new low carbon technologies and the industrial base alike. Meanwhile, there is also clear support for a host of specific green policies, including continued backing for offshore wind and tidal power, new strategies for energy efficiency, green heat, and carbon capture and storage technologies, the rapid development of a smarter grid, and a clear roadmap for the deep decarbonisation of transport.
