Leading the way, Kyoto and beyond

The EU Commissioner for Climate Action explains how the European Union will continue to set the pace for the ambitious climate action the planet demands.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - At the Durban climate conference that ended on Sunday, the European Union's strategy worked. The first commitment period under the Kyoto protocol expires in 2012. The EU had made clear we would engage in a second Kyoto period only if Durban agreed on a clear roadmap to a deal which for the first time will bind all nations legally.

And Durban delivered this roadmap. It agreed that this new legal framework must be concluded by 2015 and come into force from 2020. And it stated that the new climate regime must be more ambitious than the one we have now.
