EU countries should investigate the introduction of personal carbon allowances, Finland’s environment minister and current chair of the EU environment council Jan-Erik Enestam said in Brussels on Friday. Mr Enestam was speaking at a conference organised by green group EEB. The NGO warned that EU environmental policy leadership was "getting dangerously weak". Personal carbon allowances were cited by the Finnish minister as an example of the kind of "new generation" environmental policies being advocated by the Finnish presidency (EED 17/06/06).
