“A day will not pass by” without EU pressure

The EU will push for firm international commitments on sustainable growth at RIO +20, the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro next June, 2012.  According to Janez Potočnik , Environment Commissioner, “a day will not pass by” without the EU pressing for action.
In line with the EU’s REACH regulation, Potočnik underlines that he supports more global attention to chemical hazards. Furthermore, Potočnik stresses that EU’s own environmental standards offer a global model for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, better resource efficiency and improving the sustainability of agriculture.
Notably, the commissioner remarks that Europe has “the duty and the responsibility” to play a key role at the UN Conference and calls on countries to strive for binding milestones rather than general goals.
