The Environment Minister Eamon Ryan says ‘every country’ should follow Ireland in cutting its emission targets.
Ireland’s Climate Change Advisory Council has outlined proposals for a 51% reduction in emissions by 2030, and to achieve net-zero carbon by 2050.
Reports suggest the agriculture sector will have to cut its emissions by 21%, and the electricity sector by 80% by 2030.
It comes as world leaders meet in Scotland for the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26.
