Europe’s greenhouse emissions at all time low

GREENHOUSE emissions are at a record low in Europe, according to new data.

The European Environment Agency states emissions are 19.2% lower than in 1990, making the collective 2020 emissions reduction target a reality.

The emission reduction from 2008 to 2012 in the first 15 EU member states was greater than Spain’s total emissions in 2012.

Reductions in transport and industry and increased renewable energy alternatives have helped lower emissions.
