GUERNSEY is failing to meet greenhouse-gas-emission targets.
Concern has been raised among policy makers as figures released have revealed that the island’s emissions have slipped back to 1990 levels. It means that direct policy changes lie ahead instead of a relaxed approach adopted so far that has relied heavily on the cable link supplying electricity from France.
The island is signed up to the Kyoto Protocol through the UK and is committed to reducing greenhouse gasses – which contribute towards global warming – by 12.5% on 1990 levels by 2010. And the States is also investigating setting a tougher target of a 30% reduction by 2020.
