European Green Deal

European Green Deal LogoThe EuropeanGreen Deal is a comprehensive policy framework developed by the European Union to address the pressing challenges of climate change and environmental degradation. It represents a bold vision for transforming the EU economy into a more sustainable, low-carbon, and resource-efficient model, while also fostering economic growth and creating new jobs.

At its core, the Green Deal aims to achieve climate neutrality in the EU by 2050, which means reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero levels. To achieve this ambitious goal, the Green Deal sets out a wide range of policy initiatives and measures, including:

  • Increasing the use of renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, and hydropower, and promoting energy efficiency in buildings and transport
  • Transforming the transport sector by promoting electric vehicles, sustainable mobility, and alternative fuels
  • Supporting the circular economy by reducing waste and promoting the reuse, repair, and recycling of materials
  • Protecting biodiversity and ecosystems by restoring degraded land and reducing pollution
  • Promoting sustainable agriculture and forestry practices
  • Investing in research and innovation to develop new green technologies and solutions

To implement these measures, the EU has committed to mobilizing significant public and private investments, totaling at least 1 trillion euros over the next decade. The Green Deal is also closely linked to the EU’s broader agenda for a sustainable and socially just transition, which aims to ensure that no one is left behind in the shift towards a green economy.

Overall, the Green Deal represents a significant step forward for the EU in addressing the urgent environmental and climate challenges of our time, and positioning the region as a global leader in sustainable development.
