The Greek Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change has announced plans to allocate €1.5 billion, jointly funded by the public and private sectors and the European Union, toward environmental infrastructure and other green developments.

The plan also intends to create 12,000 jobs and reduce the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions. It will include such projects as the eco-upgrading of existing industrial parks, where environmentally friendly businesses can relocate.

New eco-business parks will also be created on several islands. Our appreciation, Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change and Greece, for this significant initiative to mobilize the economy towards sustainable endeavors. May you meet with fruitful success for the betterment of the Greek people and the planet.
