Cyprus national plan aims for reduction of greenhouse emissions by 24% compared to 2005 levels.

    The plan sets a goal for a 24% reduction in greenhouse emissions in Cyprus by 2030, compared to 2005 levels (excluding emissions from electricity, cement and pottery / brickworks), when the EU target is 40% by 2030.

This is scandalous. The EU targets a 40% reduction by 2030 from all sources. Cyprus targets an estimated 12% reduction by 2030.

Why? When the quote says an already meagre 24% reduction? Because electricity, cement and pottery / brickworks are excluded and these account for a minimum guestimated 50% of the total. So, the official 24% reduction is, in effect, a downright lie because it comes essentially only from transport and heating.

Dear devil,

Just to let you know, we are working on gathering the details of the announced emissions reduction plan by the Cabinet of Cyprus and the methodology decisions behind excluding emissions from the sectors mentioned.
