This week, the European Commission held its "Green Week" in Brussels, this year with the slogan: "Only One Earth". For four days, civil society, business world and government authorities debated, exchanged experience and tried, with the best specialists, to reply to a number of key questions about the planet's future.
This is the eighth time the Green Week is being held. With several thousand participants each year, it is the most important annual international event dedicated to the European Union’s environmental policies.
On that occasion, Stavros Dimas, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, gave a press conference and announced that the European Commission will propose the introduction of mandatory minimum standards for the most environmental harmful products. SHOTLISTLINKLINK
