Nations Likely to Miss Copenhagen Accord January 31 Deadline


Nations are likely to miss the Copenhagen Accord’s Jan. 31 deadline for specifying 2020 emission targets and actions, an analyst at Orbeo said. There is a 30 percent chance that countries will be ready by the end of next month to publish steps for the coming decade according to Emmanuel Fages, a Paris-based analyst at Orbeo. Orbeo is Societe Generale SA’s carbon-trading venture with Rhodia SA.
