Conclusion of the EPSCO Council, 21.10.2010

their reform programmes should aim at „sustainable growth means
building an energy and resource-efficient, sustainable and
competitive economy, a fair distribution of the cost and benefits
and exploiting Europe’ s leadership in the race to develop new
processes and technologies, including green technologies. Member

which will also help to prevent environmental degradation an
biodiversity loss. They should also improve the business
environment, stimulate the creation of green jobs and help
enterprises to modernise their industrial base.”
