National Council and MEB sign Energy Transition Pact
Stéphane Valeri, President of the National Council, recently signed the Principality’s National Energy Transition Pact on behalf of the High Assembly. Two weeks earlier, on 24 April, Michel Dotta also officially signed the Energy Transition Pact on behalf of the Monaco Economic Board. The objective for the National Council, the MEB and everyone who signs the pact is to commit to a decarbonated Monaco.
Created in January this year and launched by the HSH Prince Albert II, who was the first to sign, this Pact allows everyone to contribute, by their own measure, to Monaco’s energy transition. The goals of the pact are clear: reduce greenhouse gas emissions, act for the energy sobriety of the Principality and increase local production of renewable energy.
The National Pact aims to engage the Monegasque Community in order to reach the objectives of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% in 2030 compared to 1990, and for carbon neutrality by 2050. The pact consists of a commitment charter that sets the three priorities of the energy transition: mobility, waste and energy.
There are also a dozen sectoral action plans (for institutions, individuals, hotels, businesses, developers, architects, industries, etc.) that present mandatory minimum actions and their impact, in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Everyone and anyone can thus be more aware of what they can concretely achieve in his field.
The signing of the Pact concerns both individuals and companies and many people in the Principality have already signed (the National Pact now has nearly 400 members, including HSH the Sovereign Prince and his Government). But for the commitment to lead Monaco to carbon neutrality, everyone must do their part. Those who have not yet signed can quickly and easily do so.
