To protect our environment and maintain a high quality of life is the goal of the sustainable transition. Regardless of the various viewpoints on how we should achieve this objective, it presents both a significant challenge and a unique opportunity for us all.

In collaboration with citizens and businesses, our political system must establish a clear and equitable framework so that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, can engage on the path towards sustainability.

To do so, we need pragmatism and cohesion. It is only through this that we can we support citizens and businesses on the path towards making the adoption of eco-friendly behavior the most obvious and straightforward choice.

In government, we have set important milestones and formulated ambitious goals which we have achieved.
To modernise, digitise and simplify our efforts for a sustainable transition in order to ensure a liveable planet for us and our children, that is my commitment and my promise.
