Green House Gas Emissions and EU Enlargement

August 2000 to December 2000

In the course of their accession to the European Union, the acceding countries have to implement the existing body of European rules (acquis communautaire). As a result, the level of their greenhouse gas emissions can be expected to be affected. In this project, the effects of the accession of Estonia, Poland, Slovenia, the Czech Republik and Hungary on their greenhouse gas emissions were assessed. The study analyses the effects the EU accession of Estonia, Poland, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Hungary may have on the greenhouse gas emissions of these countries.

This issue is ofRead more

In the project report that was published as a book, the negotiations and their result are analysed in detail. Read more
