The EU4Environment programme has supported the development of the document to strengthen the competitiveness of industrial products produced in Ukraine, the introduction of resource- and energy-efficient technologies and ensurt better quality and safety of the environment.
The Strategy has been developed for over 10 months and is the result of the participation of over 500 representatives of over 20 think tanks, over 30 business associations, 40 executive bodies, experts, civil society, and Members of Parliament.
The document outlines strategic steps for the development of industry, agriculture, mining, infrastructure, transport, energy, information and communication technologies, creative industries, and the service sector. The strategy also takes into account important cross-cutting areas – digitalisation, renewable energy, the development of entrepreneurship, and balanced regional development.
EU4Environment has participated in the relevant discussions ensuring that the Progamme’s areas of work are well represented in the Strategy. Two sections (10 and 20) of the Strategy include objectives in industry and quality of life fields which correlate with the EU4Environments activities. Waste reduction, extended producer responsibility, resource efficient technology and education, creation of the climate fund as an institution, increasing ecotax, state environmental control, and green bonds are among them.
EU4Environment aims to help partner countries preserve their natural capital and to increase people’s environmental well-being, by supporting environment-related action, demonstrating and unlocking opportunities for greener growth, and setting mechanisms to better manage environmental risks and impacts.
