Germany, Britain call for 'green recovery' from pandemic

APRIL 28, 2020


by Frank Jordans

Germany and Britain said Monday that efforts to revive the global economy in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic must ensure a 'green recovery' that helps the world tackle climate change.

Speaking ahead of a virtual meeting of officials from some 30 countries, Germany's environment minister said it was important for economic recovery programs to invest in future-proof jobs that would help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in coming years, rather than aim for a return to business as usual.

"We mustn't invest in technologies of the past," Svenja Schulze told The Associated Press, noting that some countries are holding onto plans to build new coal-fired power plants.

Some German politicians have called for stimulus money to be spent on subsidizing car purchases, to boost the country's auto industry.
