Duda made the declaration during an international business conference on sustainable development in the Hungarian capital Budapest, Polish state news agency PAP reported.
He attended the event as part of a two-day visit to Hungary, where he held talks with his Hungarian counterpart János Áder and Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová at a summit of the regional Visegrad Group (V4).
In his address to the Planet Budapest 2021 conference, Duda said Poland was "a classic example of putting the goal of sustainable development into practice."
He added that the country's emissions have been falling for many years now, while its GDP kept growing robustly until the coronavirus struck, in a trend "typical of our region and unique compared to the rest of the world."
Duda told the conference that "the COVID-19 pandemic has caused business models to evolve, accelerating innovation and the implementation of new technologies."
He added that Poland was part of these innovative processes, including through the Three Seas Initiative of European countries between the Black, Baltic and Adriatic Seas, "where we seek to develop innovative solutions in the field of transport, energy and the digital economy."
Looking ahead, the president said that Poland's post-pandemic growth would focus on "strategic infrastructure projects, sustainable transport, health, digitisation, innovation, as well as the great challenge of a just energy transition towards a climate-neutral economy."
"We'll be striving to reconcile healthy economic growth with a concern for the environment and for the climate, in an even more effective way," the president pledged.
