Sweden Joins France & Czech Republic In Climate Pledge

Published tisdag 22 april 2008 kl 15.18

Sweden joined France and the Czech Republic on Tuesday in pledging to make real progress on combating global warming during their EU presidencies.

During their respective six month tenures, the three countries face the challenge of sealing an agreement on the commission’s climate-energy package.

They also aim to launch talks with a new US administration over global warming and prepare for the Copenhagen UN summit in December 2009 which should hammer out a successor to the Kyoto climate change agreement.

Speaking in Prague, Sweden’s ambassador to the Czech Republic, Catherine Von Heidenstam said;

”The overarching aim (of the Swedish presidency) will be for the success of the UN conference in Copenhagen in December 2009 and to reach a new global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Sweden , together with the Czech Republic, Germany and Denmark, are working on a proposal for EU countries to offer developing countries substantial funds to help them pursue economic growth without adding to the greenhouse gases blamed for climate change.

Sweden holds the EU presidency in the autumn, 2009.
