For the German nature conservation Association NABU is the RWE chief Rolf Martin Schmitz in the field of climate and environmental policy, the "dinosaur of the year 2018". The reason for the negative price, it was said that Schmitz had polarized, with its Insistence on the clearance of the hambach forest for the local mining brown coal in the increasingly heated debates about the protection of the climate.
With its "old-fashioned demonstration of power" in the dispute over the clearing have proven to Schmitz himself into the Offside, said NABU President Olaf Tschimpke. The RWE boss I want to create a fait accompli, irrespective of the social mood, the ongoing negotiations in the coal Commission of a regulated coal phase-out, and the consequences for nature and the environment. By a court judgment, the deforestation of the forest has been stopped for the time being.
