Prince Charles joins EU leaders at Low Carbon Prosperity Summit


Britain's Prince Charles joined MEPs and senior EU figures to co-host a "Low Carbon Prosperity Summit" at the European Parliament in Brussels on 9 February. Scientists, NGOs and business leaders also came to talk about how Europe and the world can create a low carbon economy. Prince Charles said economic growth should be decoupled from ever greater environmental destruction. Welcoming guests Parliament's President Jerzy Buzek noted that the EP had been the first to institute an environment committee after the first direct elections in 1979. He said it was a place where "ideas can become laws". Mr Buzek noted that the EU's "20/20/20" strategy to cut emissions by 20%, increase energy efficiency by 20% and use 20% of renewable energy by 2020 was a step in the right direction. He said the European Energy Community initiated last May was an important step forward for efficiency. He also said that partnerships between public, private and NGOs were essential.
