Jerusalem, Berlin collaborate on green industry standards

Representatives of the Israeli and German Environmental Protection ministries, and of the European Union, celebrated on Tuesday the conclusion of an 18-month twinning project whose focus has been advancing green licensing standards in industry.

One of the biggest achievements of the €900,000-twinning program was the Israeli Environmental Protection Ministry’s publication of a draft Integrated Environmental Licensing Law in December, the EU delegation said. If the bill become law, it would streamline permitting procedures and demand that companies use best-existing technologies to reduce environmental damage, the delegation said.
