Van Rompuy: European climate deal 'ambitious and balanced'
European Union leaders have agreed a landmark deal on climate change, with a commitment by 2030 to a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
They also pledge to boost the use of renewable energy to 27% and increase energy efficiency to at least 27%.
The European Council's president, Herman van Rompuy, said the deal was both ''ambitious and balanced''.
