10:00:17 SOUNDBITE by Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment and Vice-Chair of the European Resource Efficiency Platform, (in ENGLISH) saying that the meeting should give the political guidance for their future work; the Sherpas have been working really hard; the Members of the European Resource Efficiency Platform will be discussing the priorities which they have chosen for the future on which they should focus; they also would like to adopt a manifesto of the group because they would like to give a clear political message where the resource efficiency should guide them. 00:00:25
10:00:43 SOUNDBITE by Janez Potočnik (in ENGLISH) saying that they talk about the indicators and the targets which are one of the most important things: do we really need targets for the future if we want to be set on the right path?; of course, they will also discuss a bit the situation how the best to support the winners and how to help the losers of this transition. 00:00:26
10:01:09 SOUNDBITE by Ida Auken, Danish Minister for Environment and Member of the European Resource Efficiency Platform, (in ENGLISH) saying that it will be important that they all take the outcome of the manifesto to their national governments and the different places where they work but, first of all, the Commissioners should take it to the Commission and make sure that it will be part of the EU policies. 00:00:20
10:01:30 SOUNDBITE by Ida Auken (in ENGLISH) saying that the priority for her is to have a green product policy and maybe even have a new directive where they set standards for the resource efficiency of new products; it would be a huge step forward if we could say that in Europe we want to produce products that use less materials but that are also designed in a way where they can be separated and all materials be reused so that we don't need new materials for consumption. 00:00:28
