    Belgium may still meet its 2020 EU climate goals, according to an answer given by Energy Minister Marie-Christine Marghem (MR) to a question from an MP, reveal daily papers De Standaard and Le Soir on Monday. The outlook for 2020 is not good yet, says the minister, but CO2 emission rights accumulated in the past few years because of the economic slowdown will help balance the situation. Mrs. Marghem admits this is an “accounting fluke” but adds that this must not prevent Belgium from trying to find new measures to take.
