“Foreign Minister Miro Cerar, accompanied by a 20-strong business delegation, will pay a visit to Albania on Monday. The focus of the business talks will be on the environment, especially the treatment of waste waters, drinking water and dumping grounds, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GZS) said in a press release on Friday.

Companies from other sectors dealing with environmental issues (such as energy, engineering, construction, banking, IT, cooling system and health) will also be represented.” (Slovenia Times)

“Slovenian President Borut Pahor is one of 16 leaders of European countries and governments that have joined the call for more ambitious climate action. The Joint Statement, initiated on the initiative of the Austrian President, Alexander Van der Bell, calls for ‘joint, decisive and immediate’ action to halt the climate crisis.

Leaders in the statement underline that our generation is the last that can still deal effectively with the global climate crisis. They recall that the commitments made by the countries under the auspices of the Paris Agreement are not sufficient to achieve the long-term objectives of this agreement. ‘We have to do more – and our actions must be quick, resolute and common,’ they stated.” (translated from Sio1)
