The Ministers of Environment awarded the Environmental Friendship Certificate to 3M - Belgium

The Ministers of Environment awarded the Environmental Friendship Certificate to 3M – Belgium

In 2000 and 2003, Vera Dua and Ludo Sannen, both Agalev’s environment ministers, gave the green light for a federal tax deduction for 3M. They did this by giving the chemical company a certificate that had to prove that 3M had an “environmentally friendly character,” he writes. HLN.be Thursday.

It relates to two certificates that Vera Dua and Ludo Sannen handed over to 3M in 2000 and 2003. The reason for this was the investments that 3M wanted to make on its plant site, for which it wanted a federal discount. To be eligible for this discount, 3M was required to obtain a certificate from the Flemish government proving that the company was environmentally friendly. Vera Dua and Ludo Sannen, both Flemish environment ministers at the time, gave 3M such a certificate.

Both ministers also respond to HLN: “I can’t imagine anything else about this,” says Vera Dua from the outside. I don’t think PFOS was a problem at the time. This certificate will have been given to me by the administration and I have signed it. Senene also doesn’t feel addressed: “As a minister, I’ve received no indication of problems with 3M. Perhaps this was an environmentally friendly investment?
