To overcome the massive threat of climate change and environmental degradation, European Union has decided to launch a new growth strategy – Green Deal envisaging the fundamental transformation of the EU industry and making the EU economy sustainable by 2050. European Commission proposes to raise massive public investments and direct private capital towards climate and environment action, to pass a European climate law, to revise and extend the EU ETC, to ensure effective carbon pricing, and introduce a carbon border adjustment to avoid leakage.
European Commission’s new industrial strategy is to achieve a twin transition of sustainability and digital sovereignty to stimulate European competitiveness. Its purpose is to accomplish a climate-neutral continent by promoting the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy, restoring biodiversity, lowering pollution, and mobilizing research and innovation. Research and innovation will play a central role in speeding up and guiding necessary transitions; disseminating and demonstrating solutions by reducing risks and involving citizens in social innovation.
