Resource or Project Abstract

The National Climate Change Strategy 2007-2012
Under the Kyoto Protocol Ireland agreed to a target of limiting its greenhouse gas emissions to 13% above 1990 levels by the first commitment period 2008-2012 as part of its contribution to the overall EU target. Ireland ratified the Kyoto Protocol on the 31 May 2002, along with the EU and all other Member States, and is internationally legally bound to meet the challenging greenhouse gas emissions reduction target.

To ensure Ireland reaches its target under the Kyoto Protocol and, building on measures put in place following the publication of the first National Climate Change Strategy in 2000 (see below), the Government has published a new The National Climate Change Strategy 2007-2012.
