    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, OCTOBER 20- Between 1990 and 2014 the EU has already cut 23% of its emissions of carbon gas, going beyond the 20% target set for 2020, but in order to attain its 40% objective by 2030 it must do much more, the European Environment Agency (EEA) indicated.

    According to the agency, following current measures ,the European Union will reach only the 24% target and, adding additionnally planned ones, 25%. For this reason, Brussels is already working on new provisions, starting from the reform of the European Emissions Market (Ets). (ANSAmed).
