Today, the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) will discuss the matter of significant national importance “European Union’s and Estonia’s climate targets by 2030 – achieving ‘Fit for 55’”, initiated by the European Union Affairs Committee.

Chairman of the European Union Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Siim Kallas, as well as Member of Cabinet of the Executive Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans Helena Braun, Director of Stockholm Environment Institute Tallinn Centre Lauri Tammiste, and Professor of the University of Tartu and Science and Development Director of Milrem Robotics Mart Noorma will deliver reports at the sitting of the Riigikogu.

Kallas said that the green transition package ‘Fit for 55’ was a collection of very big and complicated initiatives that aimed to reduce climate warming. “Climate warming has already caused extreme heat, floods, drought, shortage of water, rise of sea levels, melting of glaciers, forest fires, windbreakages and damage to agriculture,” he noted. “In the future, these phenomena will have a great impact on ecosystems, people and economy.”

The chairman said that now it was the time we had to decide what to do to achieve climate neutrality.

The reports will be followed by questions to the speakers and comments by the representatives of political groups and members of the Riigikogu.

The sitting begins at 10 a.m., and will be streamed live on the Riigikogu home page and Facebook page.

The video recording of the sitting can be viewed on the Riigikogu YouTube channel.
