The German government has lowered the CO2 reduction targets for industry and utilities in the final version of its climate action plan, according a document seen by Reuters on Friday.

The reduction targets for power plants were also lowered slightly compared to earlier drafts, it showed.

The document also did not include a call for the introduction of a minimum price for pollution certificates in the European Union's carbon trading scheme.

Instead, the plan only calls for more efficacy in the EU's carbon trading scheme.
