Following the Pan-European Environmental Ministers meeting in Belgrad in 2007, a revision is ongoing for the Environment for Europe process. The NGOs in European Eco-Forum support continued Pan-European environmental activities, also on ministerial levels.
The group proposes that the environment ministers include sustainable energy (renewable energy and energy efficiency) as important elements in Pan-European environmental activities and that they:
• Promote Pan-European cooperation on renewable energy, including windpower, to strengthen the capacities of involved countries to use and benefit from renewable energy
• Promote Pan-European cooperation on energy efficiency standards,
requirements, and labels on energy using products to reduce energy consumption in cost-effective ways
• Promote cooperation energy efficient cars with standards, requirements, and labels
• Promote Pan-European cooperation on energy efficiency in buildings, linking up with EUs' work on energy efficiency requirements for houses
