The Key Measures Needed to Achieve the European Green Deal

Fighting climate change and making Europe climate-neutral by 2050 is one of the main priorities of the European Commission. In support of this priority, the Commission is reinforcing Green Deal-related research and innovation with this dedicated call for proposals under the current research and innovation programme – Horizon 2020.

The European Green Deal is our roadmap for making the EU’s economy sustainable and the first climate-neutral continent. Over 35% of Horizon Europe spending will contribute to climate objectives therefore the Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG R&I) invites the research and industrial stakeholders, including RTOs to participate in the recently published broader stakeholder consultation on the Renewed Sustainable Finance Strategy. The Renewed Sustainable Finance Strategy aims to provide the policy tools to ensure the financial system genuinely supports the transition of the industry towards sustainability in a context of recovery. The strategy is an integral part of the European Green Deal and will contribute to the objectives of the European Green Deal Investment Plan, in particular to create an enabling framework for private investors and the public sector to facilitate sustainable investments.

Read initial roadmap of the key policies and measures needed to achieve the European Green Deal here and  take part in stakeholder consultation on the Renewed Sustainable Finance Strategy by providing your feedback  through the online questionnaire by 15 July 2020.
