Impact of 30% carbon reduction Slovakia
08/10/2011 - Friday 7th of October, Sander de Bruyn presented the report: "Moving towards a 30% carbon reduction target in the EU, Economic impacts in Slovakia " to the Slovak Minister of the Environment, Ing. József Nagy. The report, based on a study commissioned by Greenpeace international, shows that the goal of -30% CO2 emission reduction target is feasible in Slovakia and can, in fact, be achieved without additional costs for the Slovakian economy. Both the direct and indirect costs of the higher reduction target tend to outweight each other compared to the present -20% reduction target. The report was welcomed by the Minister as an important contribution to the debate in his country and by Prof. Jacqueline McGlade, deputy director of the EEA in Copenhagen who was on a visit at the Slovakian Ministry of the Environment.
