The changes provide for extension of the period of use of assets under a sale of assigned amount units for the period of large-scale projects.
The day before the meeting of the Environment Council, Warsaw has spoken up and recalled that, in its view, there were some lines that should not be overstepped: it is out of the question to accept further emissions reductions by 2020; it is equally out of the question to define, at this point, intermediate objectives for 2030; it is out of the question to give up its excess to carbon or assigned amount units (AAU); and, lastly, it is out of the question to commit to a long-term climate policy on an international level without knowing beforehand what the cost will be for each member state.
This also means that, throughout the suspension period, Romania will be unable to sell its surplus assigned amount units (AAU).
It notes that the surplus of assigned amount units (AAU) could affect the protocol's integrity if not addressed in an appropriate and non-discriminatory manner, granting equal treatment to EU and non-EU countries.
The problems still concern, on the one hand, the setting of interim targets (or milestones) for 2030 and 2040 and the request to the Commission to present proposals for 2030 (for the road map) and, on the other, targets for reducing or limiting emissions and the matter of assigned amount units (AAUs) in the text on Durban (see Europolitics 4381).
Apart from its participation in the EU's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), Romania, like other Eastern European countries, is authorised by the Kyoto Protocol, with a view to achieving the emissions reductions imposed for 2012 (-5% from 1990 levels), to sell assigned amount units (AAU) not used due to the collapse of very polluting industries inherited from the Communist regime.

Several countries have tabled proposals for new funds: Argentina (multilateral fund), South Korea (mitigation actions), Switzerland (carbon tax), Mexico (green fund) and Norway (auctioning of part of the assigned amount units (AAU: one unit = one metric tonne carbon dioxide equivalent).
Some had brought up the idea of coming around to selling a share of their surplus emissions rights (also known as assigned amount units, or AAUs).
Such details are vital for the system to work as they determine the distribution of Assigned Amount Units to member states, each equivalent to 1 tonne of CO2 equivalent.
