A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d93oct113

Germany intends to cut emissions of greenhouse gases to half their 1987 levels by the year 2005. Its plans for meeting this goal, the most ambitious announced by any industrialized country to date, are discussed in a report that was submitted at the INC meeting in Geneva (see Reports). Carbon dioxide emissions have already dropped in the country as a result of German unification, and much of the progress toward the goal is expected to be made through modernization in the former East Germany, as well increased heating efficiency of buildings throughout the country and reduced transportation emissions. (See Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 4-5, Sep. 1993; New Scientist, p. 6, Aug. 28 1993.)
