Informal Environment Council on sustainable materials management: extracts from the joint press conference by Janez Potočnik and Joke Schauvliege, Flemish Minister for Environment, Nature and Culture and President in office of the Council

78 views

On 12 July 2010, Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, attended the Informal Environment Council on sustainable materials management under the Belgian Presidency of Joke Schauvliege, Flemish Minister for Environment, Nature and Culture, in Ghent in Belgium. They gave a joint press conference after the meeting. The way materials are used today involves raw materials and damages the environment. For this reason, the EU Ministers for Environment exchanged ideas on sustainable materials management during the Informal Environment Council. The key question is to what extent EU policy can contribute to materials – regardless of whether they are raw materials, semi-processed products or waste products – as efficiently and in as environmentally friendly a way as possible. In other words, how can we keep hold of natural capital and reduce the environmental impact over the whole life-cycle from extraction, consumption and production to recycling.
