Nachfolgend wird eine geringfügig modifizierte Pressemitteilung des Europäischen Parlaments dokumentiert.
MEPs and the French Council Presidency reached an informal agreement on Saturday morning on the last details of the climate change package. This comes after the summit on Thursday and Friday which saw agreement between EU Member States. The compromises reached still need to be put to a first reading vote at Parliament’s December plenary session in Strasbourg and then to be formally endorsed by the full Council.
In three consecutive meetings, Parliament’s delegations, led by the three rapporteurs, and representatives of the French presidency finalised the informal negotiations on:
* the directive revising the current EU emission trading system (ETS);
* the decision setting ceilings for national emissions in sectors not covered by the ETS directive;
* the directive providing the legal framework for the new carbon dioxide capture and storage technology (CCS).
