Turkey prepares road map for climate policy

 

Turkey has prepared a road map to fight climate change, setting goals for 2030, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım has said.

“Thus, we will prevent 246 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions in 2030 and 1.92 billion tons in total between 2012 and 2030,” Yıldırım said in his address to Istanbul Technical University (İTÜ) graduates on Dec. 21.

“Our goal is to make Turkey a country that produces and exports technology for renewable energy,” he said, adding that development and growth of a country is linked to how much energy it produces and consumes.

 Turkey has a potential to produce some 45 percent of its energy from renewable sources, the prime minister said.
