The eco-minded trade fair Green Solutions has opened its doors in Mexico City.

Under the slogan "Shaping clean policy for a low-carbon economy", the three-day conference started on Wednesday, and aims to be a meeting place for those working in business, investment and technology in an environmentally conscious way.

Patricia Espinosa, Mexico's minister of foreign affairs, called on attending nations to come to an agreement on how to confront climate change. She said the idea that greener is more expensive needs to be reassessed.

Patricia Espinosa said, "There is still a huge concern over a lack of political agreement on the future of the climate regime. You are part of the vanguard that has understood that tackling climate change is more an opportunity than a cost. You understand the need to make the most of natural resources and that adopting technological changes for cleaner production can boost productivity, increase innovation, create new markets and generate confidence."
