Conference on Commerce and Environment: Life+ Green Commerce 2012-06-29 - No Comments

The Ministry of Economy, Industry and Commerce celebrated yesterday the Green Commerce Day in Torrevieja, Valencian Community. The Green Commerce project aims to involve retail stores as well as customers in the fight against climate change through the inculcation of the necessity to reduce energy consumption and waste production through simple techniques, easy to implement. The experimental project implemented in Torrevieja and San Sebastián carried out a total of 187 audits in 2 years, where 44 retail stores from Torrevieja and about 30 in San Sebastian succeeded. Following the comments of Silvia Ordiñaga, General Director of Commerce and Consumption, the aim is now to generalise it throughout the Valencian Community.

During the inauguration of the conference, the General Director affirmed that about 40 municipalities of the Valencian Community have declared the interest on joining the project. In addition, she is confident that before the end of the year, about 30 municipalities will have signed collaboration agreements with the Ministry. The Conference had been closed by the Mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolón, who demonstrated his satisfaction regarding the work of the shopkeepers concerning the minimization of the environmental impact in their retail store.
