We present you with a report of an online roundtable organised by EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy, Centre for Transport and Energy and Globsec, and in cooperation with the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the EU on 12 November 2020.
The aim of the roundtable was to reflect on the proposed higher emission-reduction target by 2030 and discuss its ramifications for Czechia and Slovakia. The countries’ outlooks were presented by Pavel Zámyslický (Director, Department of Energy and Environment, Ministry of Environment of Czechia) and Gabriela Fischerová (Director General, Directorate of Climate Change and Air Protection, Ministry of Environment of Slovakia). An overarching view on EU climate ambitions was presented by Zdeněk Čech (Head of Economic Analyses Section, European Commission Representation in Slovakia). The technical feasibility of the proposed 55% target was elaborated upon by Chris Rosslowe (Energy and Climate Data Analyst, Ember). The keynote speech was delivered by H.E. Jaroslav Zajíček (Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the EU). The debate was moderated by Kateřina Davidová (EUROPEUM/Centre for Transport and Energy).
