In March 2000, the European Commission launched the European Climate Change Programme (ECCP), whose goal is to identify a strategy to implement the Kyoto Protocol. The overall strategy features a twin-track approach: a green paper on greenhouse gas emissions trading within the European Union and a broader multi-stakeholder consultation, the ECCP, which will help the Commission develop Community measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by feeding in the necessary expertise from Member States, businesses and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The process has focused on the key areas for emissions reduction. A number of technical working groups have been meeting in the past twelve months to discuss policy options in areas such as energy, transport, industrial gases and emissions trading. An ECCP progress report was delivered in November 2000.
