Environment Minister Mario de Marco said yesterday that a costing exercise had shown that the implementation of measures detailed in the national environment policy will cost €2.1 billion (by 2020), but he pointed out that 88% of the cost is already planned and budgeted for and includes funding from the EU. Of the total cost, 62.5% will be in the energy sector, 9.1% will go towards climate change mitigation and adaptation, 10.65% towards measures related to waste, transport and water, and 18% will involve other measures. Understandably, not implementing the measures could cost much more as the country would be subject to EU infringement proceedings. Presenting the final version of the policy – which has been revised and fine-tuned since the draft version was presented for consultation last September Dr de Marco stressed that it seeks to establish a robust mechanism for monitoring and follow-up. “The policy has to be everyone’s priority, because it is ultimately aimed at improving our quality of life.
