  • Five stars for Eurostar as it announced its “Tread Lightly” campaign on Friday 1 June. The European train company will cut emissions from its operations by 25% by 2012. It also presented a 10-point green plan to accompany its energy savings initiative. Can Ryanair and Virgin Express do better?
  • EU environment ministers had an informal meeting in Essen, Germany to discuss about an ecological industrial policy for Europe. See the German environment minister’s press release. I wonder whether EU industry commissioner Verheugen was listening? On the other hand, the German Presidency’s summary of the ministers’ debate has some very encouraging conclusions. I will be coming back to this paper later.
