Germany – Germany called on its G7 counterparts on Monday (11 May) to show “emerging countries” that clean energy is not related to negative economic growth.
Speaking at a meeting of G7 energy ministers in Hamburg, Germany’s Vice Chancellor and Minister of Economy and Energy, Sigmar Gabriel, said: “Only when we will be able to show that environmental engagement and industrial success and economic success [is possible]…, we will find followers and then maybe developing countries and emerging countries will be able to accept a global agreement in Paris.”
Gabriel was referring to the Conference of Parties (COP) on climate change in early December and praised wind turbines as an “innovative and environmentally friendly technology.”
