Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday received from State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss the report on the emission of greenhouse gases in Israel. For the first time, the report was prepared in the framework of an international project of European state comptrollers, with which Israel is associated. Netanyahu noted that the Government of Israel is committed, along with the countries of the world, to taking determined action to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in order to halt global warming. He also noted that he has appointed a team of ministry directors-general, chaired by Finance Ministry Director-General Haim Shani, to formulate an operative plan and submit it for Cabinet discussion, by the end of May 2010. Netanyahu and Lindenstrauss agreed that implementing the national plan to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases is an opportunity for Israel to benefit from new technologies that it will be able to export to the entire world.
