Mitsotakis to Bloomberg: Citizens Should Not Be Burdened with Green Transition’s Costs

November 2, 2021

LONDON – Greece has already taken measures worth 500 mln euros to protect households from the energy crisis and the turmoil in the natural gas market, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis pointed out to Bloomberg news agency on Monday.

In an interview on the sidelines of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), held in Glasgow from October 31 through November 12, the Greek premier noted that “the last thing we want is for citizens to be dissappointed by the policies against climate change,” adding that “citizens should not have to bear the costs of green transition.”

Moreover, he underlined that the current turbulence in the energy market should serve as a hurdle in the transition to a green economy.
