EU not seen increasing emissions targets despite Paris deal – draft

By Barbara Lewis BRUSSELS (Reuters) – EU regulators will say this week the European Union does not need a more ambitious greenhouse gas target until the next decade, a text seen by Reuters shows, even though the Paris climate deal stipulates goals should be reviewed in 2018. Such a decision would please member state Poland, whose economy relies heavily on coal, but it would anger environment campaigners, who see the Paris Agreement, agreed in December, as an argument for the European Union to step up its efforts on tackling climate change. A text prepared ahead of a meeting of EU environment ministers in Brussels on Friday, which will debate the Paris climate deal, says the existing target “is based on global projections that are in line with the medium-term ambition of the Paris Agreement”.
