World Environment Day – EP towards a green economy

The theme of this year's World Environment Day is "green economy: does it include you?" The EP's answer is a resounding "yes". It is championing moves towards a low-carbon, resource-efficient and socially-inclusive green economy in many policy areas ranging from agriculture, energy and transport to green jobs, hailed by many as a possible way out of the current crisis.

 

A green economy based on renewable energy will stimulate Europe's technological development, says Spanish Christian-Democrat Zalba Bidegain, vice-chair of the economics committee. "Moreover, this green economy will allow us to find new ways to generate jobs, wealth and respect the environment."
