“Those individual atmosphere activities set the social and monetary patterns of our social orders that will help handle environmental change,” said the EIB VP for atmosphere activity and the earth, Emma Navarro.

“Building up the correct foundation, motivating forces and system is fundamental to engage residents to represent the earth: we can succeed if we are in this together,” she included.”Those individual climate actions set the social and economic trends of our societies that will help tackle climate change,” said the EIB vice-president for climate action and the environment, Emma Navarro.

“Establishing the right infrastructure, incentives and framework are essential to empower citizens to act for the environment: we can only succeed if we are in this together,” she added.
