PARIS – Greece’s increased ambition to deal with the climate crisis with effective tools for the protection of biodiversity was presented by Deputy Minister of Environment and Energy, George Amyras, during his keynote speeches at the annual ministerial meeting on the environment of the Economic Organisation for Cooperation and Development (OECD), held in Paris.

Amyras, speaking in a plenary discussion on the path to climate neutrality, referred to the reforms included in the National Recovery Plan “Greece 2.0” regarding the response to the climate crisis and the protection of the environment, with the promotion of Renewable Energy Sources, the National Reforestation Plan, the energy saving programme, e-mobility, the energy interconnection of the islands and the national initiative “GR-ECO islands.”

On the reduction of disposable plastics, he spoke about the ban on certain disposable products and the obligation to replace them with alternative and biodegradable products on the market. “Greece is committed to reducing the use of disposable plastics by 30 pct by 2024 and 60 pct by 2026 compared to 2022. The National Action Plan for the Circular Economy will also contribute to achieving this goal,” he noted.
