Greentown satisfied with response parliament
WILLEMSTAD – The organization of Greentown is satisfied with the response of the parliament in its presentation on an alternative solution to the refinery after the contract with the Venezuelan State Oil Company PdvSA has expired. The organization was able to give a presentation and explain its proposal to the parliament of Curaçao this week.
Independent Member of Parliament, Omayra Leeflang immediately indicated to stand behind those plans. Even ruling party PAIS favors an alternative plan on the location of the refinery. Other parties were more cautious.
Greentown proposed to develop the old refinery terrain, located at the Schottegat in Willemstad, into a new city center, where work and living will be combined. According to the organization this project should produce 16 thousand jobs.
According to Greentown on their Facebook page, sustainable economic growth and security of energy and water supply are among the greatest global challenges today. GreenTown Curaçao would like to lead Curaçao’ transition to become a green and resource efficient economy entirely independent of fossil fuels by 2030.
“GreenTown Curaçao and its organizations are at the forefront of a green vision for Curaçao, green plans with green technology and knowhow. State of Green is our mindset and also our gateway to economic solutions and to Curaçao’ green policies – from green energy to clean water and resource efficiency.”
