G20 resources dialogue in Berlin
Representatives of the G20 nations are meeting in Berlin today to talk about resource efficiency. The resource dialogue came out of the G20 summit in Hamburg last summer and aims to find ways of using resources such as water and land more sustainably. Germany’s environment minister Barbara Hendricks said in a press release: “Those who want to achieve the climate targets of Paris have to invest in resource efficiency. By using raw materials more efficiently, we save on energy and transportation and safeguard important ecosystems.”
Germany will hand over the presidency of the G20 to Argentina on 1 December 2017.
