Energy Sector Helps Reduce European Emissions, an Industrial Info News Alert

GALWAY, IRELAND--(Marketwire - September 8, 2009) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The European Environment Agency (EEA) (Copenhagen, Denmark) has credited the energy sector with playing a key role in helping reduce carbon emissions. According to the latest EEA estimates, the European Union's greenhouse gas emissions decreased in 2008 for the fourth consecutive year, thanks largely to the actions of energy companies as well as declining industrial activity brought about by the global economic slowdown. Compared to the 2007 official emissions published earlier this year, the greenhouse gas reduction in 2008 is estimated to be about 1.3 % for the EU-15 and 1.5 % for the EU-27.
