Poland urges EU emission trading changes

Junior environment minister calls for greater freedom for member states to revise emission caps

Polish junior environment minister Andrzej Mizgajski called for changes to the EU carbon emission trading system last Thursday. In comments to the country's parliament, Mr Mizgajski said member states should have greater freedom to revise emission caps. Smaller emitters like local brick factories should be excluded from the scheme, he said. Mr Mizgajski called for changes before Poland finalises its national allocation plan for the scheme's second phase, running 2008-12. See statement.
