Safe products and thus less hazardous waste, recycling materials without toxic substances, a clean environment in our country and abroad – this is the vision we promote. We strive to maintain clean production, industrial operations with the best available technologies that do not pollute the rivers, soil, and air around us, and do not cause long-term health consequences to the surrounding population. Toxic substances, especially those in plastics, now pollute the environment around the world. We help to ban the dangerous ones quickly and replace them with safer alternatives. This is because a major problem arises when toxic substances become waste.
We have long advocated for the right to open access to environmental information. We want individuals and entire communities to have the opportunity to take action based on this information and to participate in decision-making processes, whether it is about factory operations and toxic spills into the environment, the construction of hydroelectric power plants, or the pollution of rivers, the cutting down of trees, the flooding of landscapes with waste, or other environmental transgressions that significantly affect their health and the environment in which they live. We oppose the persecution of environmental activists and protect the public's right to a safe environment.
We protect rivers and river landscapes in our country and beyond. We have advocated that the weirs on the River Elbe are not yet standing, and we have helped to push for the inclusion of the Elbe Valley in the list of European protected areas Natura 2000. We monitor and respond to the construction of the Danube-Oder-Elbe Canal.We have been working for a long time to protect the last wild and unregulated rivers of Europe in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which are threatened by the construction of small hydropower plants. In Moldova, we are helping local people dependent on agriculture to restore and maintain healthy rivers.
