Posted on February 27, 2013 | No CommentsThe Environmental Pillar has welcomed the publication of the heads of the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Bill but has expressed its disappointment that after many months and much to and fro, the Cabinet has published the heads of a Bill with no targets for 2030 and 2050. The Pillar calls for the inclusion of such targets in the Bill. The Pillar also calls for provision to be made in the Bill for the inclusion of non- greenhouse gas forcing agents such as black carbon within the scope of climate targets and policy in Ireland.
