Spanish NGOs call for green way-out-of the crisis

Forty environmental and green economy measures are proposed by a coalition of Spanish NGOs, including WWF Spain, as the only sustainable solution to the economic crisis.

The announcement, which coincided with the celebration of June 5th World Environment Day, include


  • measures for energy efficiency and climate change, 
  • sustainable mobility, 
  • fair water pricing that includes the environmental cost of extraction and use,
  • improvement of Natura 2000 management, in order to meet the objectives of the Biodiversity Strategy and to develop sectoral plans,
  • respect to the Coastal Law, support of a sustainable CFP reform and invest in the marine Natura 2000 network,
  • an Environmental Taxation Act that moves the tax burden from “green” products and services to unsustainable enterprises.
