Europe's electricity suppliers say they are prepared to negotiate with the European Commission (EC) on an agreement to voluntarily cut their greenhouse gas emissions, reports ENDS Environment Daily. Eurelectric, the umbrella organisation for Europe's electric utilities, announced the deal in Brussels on June 18 after six months of debate. It intends to come to an agreement with the EC before December's climate change convention in Kyoto. According to ENDS, Eurelectric is short on details of what the agreement might contain, but its chairman, Nick Getting, says his members intend to "fulfil our responsibilities towards sustainable development."
