21 Sep 2011 10:24 AM
The CBI yesterday commented on the publication of the European Commission’s Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe.
Rhian Kelly, CBI Director for Business Environment policy, said:
“A competitive, sustainable and low-carbon economy relies on effective resource management and politicians should evaluate the role of public policy in this area.
“But any proposals must be subject to a full impact assessment to ensure we balance sustainability with improving EU competitiveness and securing critical resource supply.”
