- Start date : 17/02/2010 00:00:00
Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action, stated on 17 February 2010: "The DG CLIMA has been created today. Now we can start - I am pleased that the decision is taken at the very first College meeting. It underlines the fact that the Commission as a whole gives priority to Climate Action, and it shows that the EU can take quick decisions when needed. With the newly appointed Director-General Jos Delbeke, who will come with core staff already working on climate action, we will have a very good beginning to take the lead of the EU's Climate Action agenda."
