Island looks likely to reach target for reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
Thursday 1st March 2012, 5:00PM GMT.
GUERNSEY is on course to hit international greenhouse gas emissions targets.
Figures released yesterday also showed that they fell by 11.6% in 2010 compared to 2009.
The Kyoto protocol set a target of a reduction of 12.5%, based on the average figure achieved between 2008 and 2012, on 1990 levels. With two years of calculations to go, that figure now stands at a decrease of 19.5%.
The major contributor to the reduction since 1990 was linking up to France to take power through the cable link in 2001.
Without this, there is an upward trend in greenhouse gas emissions from power generation.
