South Korea to choose emissions target

South Korea has pledged to set one of three targets

for carbon emissions by 2020, moving toward a fi rm

commitment to combat climate change. Reuters

reported that the government said it would choose a

2020 gas emission target this year from three options:

an 8% increase from 2005 levels by 2020; unchanged

from 2005; or 4% below 2005 levels.

“Compared with developed countries, the targets

may look mild,” said Sang-hyup Kim, Secretary to

the President for National Future and Vision at the

Presidential Offi ce. “But these are utmost, sincere

efforts, refl ecting Korea’s capabilities.”
