The Malta Chamber has submitted its feedback on the public consultation for the Sustainable Development Strategy. In doing so, it has taken a holistic approach, addressing sectors ranging from energy, circular economy, sustainable mobility, and building & construction, with the overarching message that increased ambition is not only desirable but is a necessity. The drive towards sustainability, in turn, can only be achieved if it is underpinned by good governance, which truly puts the public interest first.
“The Malta Chamber recognises that economic growth must have increased quality of life, wellbeing and sustainability as its objective. Businesses must plan long-term, in sync with the European Green Deal and an economic transformation in which Malta can either lead or be dragged behind. The Malta Chamber expects leadership.” stated President of The Malta Chamber, Marisa Xuereb.
With high ambitions for sustainability as its core message, The Malta Chamber’s submission delves into concepts such as the need for a smart energy grid, organic waste to be converted into compost, and while promoting new ways of measuring success, such as through a wellbeing index which combines the work by various stakeholders on this front to date. The Malta Chamber will continue steadfastly in its mission to create a smart, sustainable island.
