Bulgaria has made a greater commitment to limiting harmful emissions in the Recovery and Sustainability Plan than was required of us.
This became clear from the words of the Acting Minister of Environment and Water, Rositsa Karamfilova
Dr. Eng. Rositsa Karamfilova is an expert with many years of experience in the field of environmental management in the program "Why, Mr. Minister".
"We must comply with the decision of the people's representatives.
Now we have an extremely serious and difficult task ahead of us - not only for me, but also for the entire caretaker government, as well as for the next regular cabinet," she explained.
According to her, our country is now in a significantly more difficult situation after the decision of the National Assembly to renegotiate with Brussels the closure of the coal plants.
Karamfilova explained that Bulgaria must indicate to the EC all the mistakes made and present the measures taken for action in the years to come.
KNSB: In the renegotiation of the Plan, a 40% reduction in emissions should not exist
Dr. Eng. Rositsa Karamfilova, an expert with many years of experience in the field of environmental management, recalled that Bulgaria, like all other countries in the EU, undertakes a pan-European commitment to reduce greenhouse emissions by a minimum of 55% by 2030, compared to 2005
"There is no specific distribution of absolute value of emissions that each country must adopt.
The EU must reduce by a minimum of 55% the total emissions it emitted in 2005 by 2030. There are over 11,000 installations in the EU-wide emissions trading scheme, which are covered by 31 countries.
Bulgaria has only about 180 issues," she further explained.
The MPs decided: the Cabinet will renegotiate the PVU in the "Energy" part
Karamfilova added that in the Plan for Recovery and Sustainability, our country has made additional commitments to limit emissions and that in one specific sector - for specific installations.
According to her, the previous regular government of Kiril Petkov made a greater commitment than was required of us.
"In order to participate in trade at the European level, there are specific rules - a ceiling, a linear distribution of emissions by year.
In practice, these rules are currently being negotiated with the prepared package for 55%.
The interesting fact is how, as of April 2022, and on the condition that there was no European regulation, these percentages were determined to reduce emissions in the years," the Acting Minister of Ecology also said.
Dr. Eng. Rositsa Karamfilova is an expert with many years of experience in the field of environmental management and also explained that Bulgaria has currently exceeded the 55% reduction in emissions set by the EU at the national level.
However, according to her, this should not be a reason for pride, because this did not happen at the expense of decarbonization, but because our economy is not working.
