The party's environmental agenda calls for creating a sustainable, long-term blueprint for Israel's energy market and setting clear environmental goals, as well as promoting the protection and preservation of the country’s natural resources.


The party's green platform also supports a public transportation reform, protecting open spaces and public access to beaches; as well as promoting a new cleantech industry development scheme.


"As a professor of environmental policy, I can honestly say this is the most comprehensive, creative and ambitious environmental platform ever introduced by a major political party in Israel," Tal told reporters.


"We are presenting a strategic link between out two movements with aim of making a change in Israel,” Livni added.


The change, she added, "Has to do with more that just an additional Knesset seat – it is promoting the issues and values that the two parties believe in.


"Israel lags behind over other developed countries on environmental issues and it's time for us - together with the Green Movement – to change that."


According to Livni and Tal, the party aspires to eventually pass "basic law – environmental protection"; which will joins Israel's other Basic Laws, meant to serve as the country's future constitution.
