Fiji to raise building and fuel emission standard
November 14, 2017 9:08 pm
The government plans to raise Fiji’s building and fuel emission standard.
This is articulated in the country’s Five and Twenty Year Development Plan launched in Bonn, Germany today.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says by raising the building and fuel emission standards, government will encourage and incentivise energy conservation.
This is the major component of Fiji’s Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement, which seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2030 from a business-as-usual scenario, using our 2013 greenhouse emissions as a baseline.
