Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan met on Monday night with OECD deputy secretary-general Rintaro Tamaki to receive the organization's first report on Israel's environmental protection for the past two years, the Prime Minister's Office said.

"The Israeli government is doing exceptional work and invests considerable resources in economic and social development while reducing environmental impact and making efficient use of natural resources," Tamaki told them, according to a statement from the Prime Minister's Office.

"For example, the extent of use of desalinated water in Israel is among the highest in the world, accounting for 42 percent of domestic water consumption, and desalination plants in Israel are among the most economical in energy consumption."
