Environmental Reform Is a Well-Balanced Compromise

Information from the Government meeting concerning the so-called environmental taxes that appeared in some media is inaccurate and we would like to ask for the relevant data to be interpreted correctly.

It is not true that the Government has adopted only the amendments proposed by the Green Party, on the contrary, the resultant environmental reform constitutes a well-balanced compromise of the whole coalition. Tax exemptions have been granted not only to gas-heated households but also those central-heated from cogeneration units (combined heat and electricity generation), as well as to solid fuels for electricity generation.
