  • World Environment Day

    While the Environmental Safety Group is very pleased to see Minister Vinet celebrate World Environment Day by planting a tree, the group states that what would be significant would be to see Government progress on the major environmental issues and engage in a programme of environmental reform. These must include:

    – Environmental Charter

    – Reduced air and noise emissions from our power stations and dockyard

    – Up-to-date development plan incorporating green areas

    – Sewage Treatment Plant

    – Limits on air and marine pollution

    – Traffic Modelling and management

    – Waste reduction and recycling policy

    – Investment in renewable and sustainable technologies

    In fact, any policy initiatives on the above to effectively improve Gibraltar’s environment and be more responsible as a “global player” would be much more appreciated by the ESG and the voting public than one small tree.
