UN secretary general António Guterres says that, despite the coronavirus, the world must not forget the “deeper environmental emergency” facing the planet, reports BBC News. In remarks released to celebrate Earth Day, Guterres says that while the pandemic is “immediate and dreadful”, it is also a wake-up call “to do things right for the future”. The planet is facing an “unfolding environmental crisis”, Guterres adds, and “must act decisively to protect our planet from both the coronavirus and the existential threat of climate disruption”.

Guterres says governments should use their fiscal firepower to drive a shift from “the grey to green” economy,  “Where taxpayers’ money is used to rescue businesses, it needs to be tied to achieving green jobs and sustainable growth…

Public funds should be used to invest in the future, not the past, and flow to sustainable sectors and projects that help the environment and the climate.”
