Inclusive Green Economy dominates at Informal Environment Council

During the course of the Informal Environment Council, which took  place in Horsens, Denmark,  ministers exchanged views on Rio+20. They agreed that the inclusive green economy is key to achieving long term sustainable development and eradicate poverty. Ministers pointed out that the EU and member states thereof should continue with concrete and ambitious proposals in the negotiation process.
The European Commissioner for the Environment, Janez Potočnik said that “An inclusive green economy will [offer] opportunities for all countries around the world and in all stages of development”. Additionally, he said that to respond to the challenges of resource constraints and pressures, it is necessary that all focus on clear goals in five pillars of life, namely:  water, sustainable energy, oceans, land and ecosystems, and resource efficiency and waste in particular.
