Mihajlovic: Environmental protection is our common task, individuals abuse it for personal interests
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Mining and Energy, Prof. Zorana Mihajlovic, PhD, says that environmental protection is a global generational issue and seeks a single common answer to the question of how to make our environment even healthier.
"From the point of view of the Government of Serbia, that certainly means a change in the law and a new environmental policy and new huge investments that must be undertaken in the protection of the environment." In energy, that means - green energy, green mining, that means a new investment program of 17 billion euros only in the field of energy and mining, which should help, when we realize these investments, reduce carbon dioxide emissions by at least one third. " says Mihajlovic. According to her, the green agenda is a new model of growth.
"The green agenda represents new, green jobs, new green investments, it should enable us to have a healthy environment. That is why I completely understand every person, because each of us wants clean air, healthy soil, healthy food, every citizen who is fighting for a healthy environment in that sense. It is completely clear to me, because we are all on the same task. What I do not understand are certainly those who are trying to abuse an issue that is common, and that is the protection of the environment for their own and only their own interests ", concludes the Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of Serbia.
