Statement by Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action, on the resignation of Yvo de Boer

18/02/2010

“Yvo de Boer has made an impressive and tireless effort in favour of the climate change agenda during his years as Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. With his great knowledge and his huge capacity, he was a solid support for Denmark prior to and during the Climate Change Conference in December. Personally, I have always greatly appreciated Yvo de Boer; his engagement and his sharp tongue. Not always a perfect diplomat, but Yvo de Boer has throughout the years played a key role in communicating the importance of the climate change agenda to world leaders and populations.”
