During its last meeting, the government decided to establish a council for sustainable development. Prominent researchers will contribute their expertise in order to help government ministers to go green, primarily focusing on economic, climate and environmental issues.

The work of the council will involve issues such as material production and energy conversion. The main aim will initially be to support the seven government ministers at the Secretariat for Strategic Development for the Future.
