Bratislava Region put at disadvantage on environmental funds

The Green Party (SZ) said that the decision by Environment Minister Ján Chrbet not to provide donations from the Environmental Fund to private individuals and towns with more than 2,000 people is unsystematic and populist.

The Green Party (SZ) said that the decision by Environment Minister Ján Chrbet not to provide donations from the Environmental Fund to private individuals and towns with more than 2,000 people is unsystematic and populist.

The ministry argues that the measure will prevent scandals along the lines of political nominees using the money to build solar panels at their houses worth millions of crowns.

But the Green responded that ordinary people shouldn’t lose the chance to decrease energy consumption at home only because of the unethical behaviour of government representatives.

Bratislava Region is also exempt from asking for donations from the Environment Ministry Operative Program, which supports kindergartens, homes for the elderly, and municipal property.

[Brussels recommended excluding the region because its GDP is above the European average - ed. note.]

The Greens have called on the Environment Ministry to reassess its decision. TASR
