(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 23 – Italian greenhouse gas emissions fell
9.8% in 2020 on the previous year due to the fall in industrial
activity following the COVID health emergency, the Higher
Institute for Environmental Protection and Research (ISPRA) said
in a preliminary estimate on Tuesday.
    There was a “significant reduction” in emissions due to COVID
restrictions, ISPRA said.
    A definitive figure is yet to be established but the likely fall
of 9.8% is linked to an 8.9% fall in GDP, the institute said.
    But this also confirmed a “decoupling” between emissions and
economic indices, ISPRA said. (ANSA).
