On Monday, April 8, HSH Prince Albert attended the opening of the exhibition of photographs of businesses and restaurants engaged in the Principality. Organised by the department of the environment, this exhibition is visitable free of charge until June 2 at the Galerie des Pêcheurs situated in the Parking des Pêcheurs.

It was in 2015, under the leadership of Prince Albert, that the Government set the ambitious objective of a policy of zero single-use plastic waste by 2030. To help economic players in this implementation, the Commerce Engagé label was launched in 2016 and was joined by the Restaurant Engagé label in 2020.

These free and voluntary initiatives encourage sustainable consumption by favouring local products, generating less waste and adopting practices to reasoned management of resources. The Principality has, to date, just over 100 certified distributers throughout its territory.

This exhibition aims to highlight the economic players who have voluntarily committed to the will of the Prince’s Government, to
support and accompany them in the implementation of these virtuous approaches to ultimately benefit the environment.

The exhibition is open to all until June 2, 2024.
