The EU is betting on its ability to become greener and more sustainable. To slash its emissions by at least 55% over the next ten years, the bloc is making full use of its Green Deal toolbox. From the Fit for 55 package to the taxonomy definition and the CO2 border tax proposal,
the old continent is pushing its way through, targeting all sectors. But will this be enough for Europe to be a global leader in sustainability?
Not only must Europe keep its environmental footprint in check, it also has to support companies and citizens economically as they emerge from the pandemic. Meanwhile, the EU is also pushing for a digital transition, which comes with its share of opportunities and setbacks in mitigating climate change.
POLITICO Live is bringing back the Sustainable Future Summit for a third edition on November 30-December 1 in Brussels and online. Taking place right after COP26 and just six months after the release of the EU Fit for 55 package, this event represents a unique opportunity to assess the contribution that each sector can bring to the table to meet the new target.
