NOMINEE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE VICE CHAIR POSITION

I respectfully accept the nomination for Vice Chair position at AmCham Environmental Committee. I believe that my previous experience and extensive knowledge in environmental issues will provide positive contribution to current and future activities of AmCham. Members are faced with various difficulties in this field. We need to work together, to create working groups and assign tasks, targeting specific problems and suggest sustainable solutions. My intention is to work on raising awareness about better implementation of existing laws by companies and local self-governments and to continue to strengthen relationship with the Ministry. I will pledge to prevent the introduction of new taxes and raising the existing ones. I will work on the establishment of sustainable waste management systems and the transfer of good practice from the EU.
