The Science Based Targets initiative,
which aims to persuade companies to set emissions
reductions targets in line with keeping global warming
to well below two degrees, now has more than 168
signatories, its organisers have announced.
European Union (EU) greenhouse gas emissions continued
to decrease in 2014, with a 4.1% reduction in emissions
to 24.4% below 1990 levels, according to the EU’s
annual inventory published last week by the European
Environment Agency (EEA).
