July 10, 2007: U.S., Mexican, Canadian Environmental Leaders Promote Green Building
The officials were gathered in Morelia, Mexico, for the 14th Council Session of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC), an organization created by Canada, Mexico, and the United States to address regional environmental concerns.
"Today's collaboration with our North American partners reaffirms President Bush's commitment to being a good global neighbor," said Johnson. "The CEC is an important catalyst for cooperative action in building a cleaner, healthier, more sustainable environment for future generations."
Johnson joined host Juan Rafael Elvira Quesada, Mexican Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources, and John Baird, Canadian Environment Minister, for the day-long meeting.
During the meeting, the Council agreed that the CEC should lead initiatives to promote green building throughout the continent.
