The Minister of State spoke at a breakfast with the press, about the Prince’s Government’s policy on energy transition.
He was surrounded by Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Government Counselor-Minister of Equipment, Environment and Urbanism, and Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux, Director of the Mission for the Energy Transition (MTE).
Serge Telle spoke about the issues relating to climate change: “They are extraordinarily difficult to grasp, the commitment must be both individual and societal, and the National Pact gives the people and businesses the ability to contribute, to their MTE’s role is to coordinate all public policies, because there is no political decision that has no impact on ecology. Your mission, Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux, is to make coherent, at the national level, the commitments that the Sovereign takes on the international level.”
Marie-Pierre Gramaglia then recalled the main thrusts of her biodiversity policy and the significant actions put in place by the MTE: “It is vital that we succeed, together, in our energy transition for a better quality of life in the Principality, an economic development compatible with the planetary limits and a responsible inheritance to our children.”
Finally, Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux recalled the objectives of the MTE and said: “We must accelerate the potentials and, for that, the digital and the Interministerial Delegation for the Digital Transition, with which we work in close association, will help us. digital and energetic transitions are convergent.”
