The Economic and Social Council Makes a Commitment to Energy Transition
A ceremony was held today at the Economic and Social Council (CES) for the signature of the National Pact on Energy Transition by the President of the Assembly, André Garino, in the presence of the Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development, Marie-Pierre Gramaglia. The aim for the Institution is to commit to a low-carbon Monaco.
As a reminder, the CES is an Assembly that is consulted by the Government on matters relating to the social and economic life of the country, and which also expresses wishes that are transmitted to the Government. The CES, whose President is appointed by the Sovereign Prince, is comprised of 36 voluntary members from civil society.
Monaco's Economic and Social Council became a member of the International Association of Economic and Social Councils and Similar Institutions (AICESIS) in 2005, the Union of Economic and Social Councils and Similar Institutions of Francophonie (UCESIF) in 2007, and since November 2009, has been a member of the EUROMED of Economic and Social Councils, which enables it to communicate major international concerns and in particular help disseminate the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted by the United Nations General Assembly.
You will find some images on our social networks and on the Monaco Info TV news from this evening at 7 p.m.
