I am very pleased to join you today to launch the OECD Environmental Performance Review of Spain. This is the third Review of Spain: the first was published in 1997, and the second in 2004. The relatively long time that has elapsed since the last Review provides an opportunity to take stock of the results that Spain has achieved over the past decade to promote greener and more sustainable growth.
It is an honour to receive this recognition from Nueva Economía Forum, an organisation that is very close to my heart because I have been involved in several of its events during my many visits to Madrid.
The OECD Environmental Performance Review Programme provides independent assessments of countries’ progress in achieving their domestic and international environmental policy commitments, together with policy relevant recommendations. This report is the third OECD review of Spain’s environmental performance. It evaluates progress towards sustainable development and green growth, with a focus on biodiversity and the environmental performance of the private sector.
Reviews are conducted to promote peer learning, enhance governments’ accountability to each other and to the public, and improve countries’ environmental performance, individually and collectively. They are supported by a broad range of economic and environmental data. Each cycle of the Environmental Performance Reviews covers all OECD member countries and selected partner countries. The most recent reviews include: Iceland (2014), Sweden (2014), Colombia (2014).
The OECD’s latest Environmental Performance Review of Spain finds the country has decreased the energy and carbon intensity of its economy, reduced industrial pollution and cut per-capita waste generation since 2000.
