While an average person does not deal with environmental policy on a daily basis, even minor changes can affect all our day-to-day lives. A successful environmental policy ensures all residents of this country, the present generation as well as future ones, an equitable living environment.
We believe that:
- the decision-making process should be transparent and the public must be granted free access to environmental information;
- environmental supervision needs to be strong and encompass a wider range of areas of life – strong supervision helps to prevent environmental disasters, the clean-up of which is vastly more complicated and expensive, and which can severely damage the natural environment in Estonia;
- the environment needs to be one of the bases of legislation, factoring in legislative drafting as much as economic benefits;
- the state must encourage the development of green technologies and reduce support for unsustainable technologies, such as oil shale.
