The Netherlands is likely to meet its target of cutting carbon emissions by 25% on 1990 levels by year end due to the impact of the coronavirus on industrial output, said Dutch banking group ING on Wednesday.

The target – which the country had been on track to miss before the pandemic curbed economic activity – was upheld by the Dutch Supreme Court last December, which set a figure of 166m tonnes for 2020 emissions.

 

Dutch emissions stood at 190m tonnes of CO2 in 2018, falling to 183m tonnes last year.
