Karmenu Vella said: "Multi-annual plans are an important tool to shift decision-making to the regional level.

neurope Thursday, December 7, 2017 10:39:00 AM CET

Karmenu Vella said: “And the segment I want to talk about today is plastics. They’ve often been the backbone of the linear economy. And because they are so convenient, they aren’t just going to disappear. But we can rethink them. We can find ways of keeping those advantages, while minimising the harm they do. And if we make them more circular, we can actually tackle three SDGs at the same time. We can move toward more sustainable production and consumption, we can tackle marine litter, and if we change our manufacturing processes and remove substances of concern, then we can also protect human health,” “This is an area where the European Commission has been working very hard. Our Action Plan for the Circular Economy made plastics a priority, so it’s something that we are preparing very carefully. The result will be a new strategy for plastics, which I want to be exemplary, and an inspiration for economies around the world,” External link

neurope Thursday, December 7, 2017 10:39:00 AM CET

Karmenu Vella said: “The first is to put this linear approach behind us. To make it not just desirable, but normal and financially advantageous to recycle plastics,” “We can do that by improving the economics and the quality of plastic recycling – being more careful about what goes into plastics in the first place, and by ensuring that there are real incentives to use plastic recyclate,” External link

neurope Thursday, December 7, 2017 10:39:00 AM CET

Karmenu Vella said: “The second aim is to cut plastic waste and littering. We’ve all seen the deeply worrying news about plastic waste polluting the most remote corners of our planet, and I sense a profound social change on this matter just around the corner. So we have to help that movement be as effective as possible. If you want a strategy to be effective, you need to ensure you are acting in the right areas, with the right instruments. That will mean some legislative measures, some economic instruments, support and enabling measures, and voluntary commitments as well,” External link

Dimitris Avramopoulos said: “It is not acceptable that in the 21st century human beings are still being trafficked as commodities and exploited – not in Europe, not anywhere. Over the years the EU has developed legal and operational tools against this heinous crime. But more needs to be done as the migration crisis and transnational security threats have rendered people more vulnerable to criminal networks and exploitation. I call on all Member States to urgently step up their investigations and prosecutions against ruthless trafficking criminals, better protect the victims and fully apply the EU rules towards their protection. I also call on all to work more closely with international partners. Human trafficking is not just a European problem – we must do everything to eradicate it everywhere it happens” External link

Всяка финансова помощ трябва да бъде директно насочена към справяне с първопричините за бежанската криза, т. е. намаляване на бедността, качествено образование, стабилен икономически растеж и преодоляване на неравенствата, така както са записани в Целите за устойчиво развитие на ООН" External link

I express my appreciation of the important efforts already undertaken by Bulgaria and Romania and strongly encourage continuing on this path in coming years.

Karmenu Vella : “C’est un point très important. Pourquoi ? Parce que quand les gens voient que toutes ces questions sont discutées à un niveau mondial, lors de conférences internationales comme le G7, le G20, la première chose qu’ils peuvent se dire, c’est que c’est un problème immense pour lequel ils n’ont pas de solution et que ce sont les gouvernements qui doivent le résoudre. Non ! Chacun d’entre nous est responsable de cette catastrophe et chacun d’entre nous doit faire partie de cette solution. Je vous donne deux exemples : en ce qui concerne les déchets plastiques dans les océans qui sont en train de tuer la biodiversité, des mammifères et des poissons, qui polluent les océans, tout est lié à votre consommation de plastique, à la question de savoir si vous les jetez n’importe comment, si vous les recyclez ou pas. Quand on parle des émissions de gaz à effet de serre qui sont notamment responsables du changement climatique, la question c’est aussi de savoir quelle voiture vous avez, si vous avez une voiture qui génère des émissions élevées ou non, si vous prenez les transports en commun plus souvent ou non.
