In May 2000, the government issued a National Strategy to Reduce GHG Emissions. The report stresses the need to ensure sustainable development and to set up a medium-term plan. The report recommends six categories of actions:

  • To ensure that electricity from renewable energies will amount to at least 10% of final electricity consumption by 2010
  • To improve energy efficiency in energy generation
  • To increase energy savings
  • To set an eco-tax progressively
  • To curb the increase in road transport
  • To rely on flexible mechanism allowed by Kyoto Protocol

On top of that, Plan lists 29 measures, some of which have been already envisaged in the National Plan on Sustainable Development from 1999.
