PAC: State Expenditure Of €86.6M On Emissions Credits "Horrific".

: 06/13/2019 - 12:05

The state has spent €86.6 million buying credit to meet emissions targets. 

The practice has been described as "horrific" by the Oireachtas Public Accounts Committee, on which sits Kildare North Social Democrat TD, Catherine Murphy. 

Ireland is failing to meet climate change targets, and can buy credits from other countries to avoid large EU fines.
