Minister welcomes Mercury conference to Scotland
Minister for Environment and Climate Change Paul Wheelhouse said: “An international conference of this stature puts Scotland on the world stage and demonstrates the important part we are playing in addressing global issues.
“Sound science, strong evidence and engaged citizens means properly informed choices and effective action on the ground and this is essential if the harmful effects of mercury pollution are to be reduced.
“This event is a key part of the journey to a new legally binding international agreement – and Scotland should take great pride in being at the heart of that process. I’d like to warmly welcome all of the 850 delegates from over 90 countries to Edinburgh and wish them every success as they progress this crucial agenda.”
