CO2 targets unrealistic: report

The Dutch government’s target of a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2020 are ‘not realistic’ and none of its planned scenarios will lead to such a cutback, according to the Roland Berger advice bureau, quoted by news agency ANP.

One of the problems the bureau identifies is that Dutch energy firms are too small to use sustainable energy on a large-scale, ANP says.
