EC President Barroso welcomes Brazil's leadership on climate change
Brussels, 14 November 2009
'I welcome the commitment made by Brazil to reduce emissions around 40% by 2020. With this decision, Brazil is amongst the first of the major emerging countries to make such a pledge. This is a potentially decisive step to achieve a global deal in Copenhagen in December and to succeed in the fight against climate change'.
