Polish President Andrzej Duda supports the government's position on the European Union's new climate strategy concerning the reduction of greenhouse gases, Duda's aide, Pawel Mucha, has told the Radio Plus broadcaster. A decision to go carbon-neutral by 2050 was blocked on Thursday by Poland and several other EU countries during the latest EU summit. Duda's aide said the president has consistently said that during a debate on climate change, all consequences must be taken into account, as, in terms of the Polish economy, the issue affects the workplaces and the social context. Sustainable development, which was also emphasised by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, should also be considered, he said.
