Malta must remain committed towards sustainability and introducing widespread green reforms. However, Malta can be more aggressive by becoming the example other countries follow in terms of sustainable measures.

The Opposition believes that Malta can be the model much larger countries look to in cases like these; after all, it was Malta in 1989 that put the subject of climate change on the UN table.

I appeal to the Maltese Government so that Malta does more than simply participate physically in the COP26 conference. Our presence must be felt through active participation as an example to other countries. This is with reference to the IPCC report which is a scientific one; therefore our country should be one of the leading proponents of effectively adopting whatever is mentioned within its pages.

The Opposition will be naming a number of proposals on this same subject, while the Government needs to be doing more in terms of sustainability, rather than simply meet EU quotas.
