InvestEU also strengthens cooperation with national promotional banks and institutions, which can encourage an overall greening of their activities to deliver on EU policy objectives. In the revision of the EU Emissions Trading System, the allocation of additional revenues from allowances to the EU budget with a view to strengthening the financing of the just transition will also be considered. Proposals there will be submitted as part of a package in March 2021. Strengthening the efforts on climate-proofing, resilience building, prevention and preparedness is crucial. The Commission will help develop smart systems for traffic management and ‘Mobility as a Service’ solutions, through its funding instruments, such as the Connected Europe Facility. particularly in Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and the Pacific. EU industry needs ‘climate and resource frontrunners’ to develop the first commercial applications of breakthrough technologies in key industrial sectors by 2030. Moreover, as part of the revision of the EU Emission Trading System, the Commission will review the role of the Innovation and Modernisation Funds, which are not financed by the EU’s long-term budget. . It will be a greener, more digital and more resilient Europe. The natural functions of ground and surface water must be restored. The biodiversity strategy will identify specific measures to meet these objectives. About half of total greenhouse gas emissions and more than 90% of biodiversity loss and water stress come from resource extraction and processing of materials, fuels and food. This will include an open platform bringing together the buildings and construction sector, architects and engineers and local authorities to address the barriers to renovation. 2.1.2.Supplying clean, affordable and secure energy. Europe’s bid to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 will aim for a just, rapid shift away from high polluting industries and technologies, Commission president Ursula von der Leyen addresses the European Parliament (Photo: European Union 2019/EP). boost the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy; restore biodiversity and cut pollution; The plan outlines investments needed and financing tools available. These could target housing associations or energy service companies that could roll out renovation including through energy performance contracting. It will analyse the need for a ‘right to repair’, and curb the built-in obsolescence of devices, in particular for electronics. Implementing the ‘Farm to Fork’ strategy will reduce pollution from excess nutrients. The Commission will also support the commitment made by national public financial resources to improve the investment climate and achieve contributions from the private sector. Mobilising research and fostering innovation. At the same time, managing the transition will lead to significant structural changes in business models, skill requirements and relative prices. The Skills Agenda and the Youth Guarantee will be updated to enhance employability in the green economy. These revisions are also an opportunity to address market barriers to the deployment of clean products. The Farm to Fork Strategy will also contribute to achieving a circular economy. The European Green Deal will accelerate and underpin the transition needed in all sectors. To support its work to identify and remedy inconsistencies in current legislation, the Commission invites stakeholders to use the available platforms. By setting a credible example, and. This initiative will also include innovative financing schemes under InvestEU. The Commission invites the European Parliament and the European Council to endorse the European Green Deal and to give their full weight to the measures it contains. A combination of measures should address emissions, urban congestion, and improved public transport. there is a risk of carbon leakage, either because production is transferred from the EU to other countries with lower ambition for emission reduction, or because EU products are replaced by more carbon-intensive imports. The EU must be at the forefront of coordinating international efforts towards building a coherent financial system that supports sustainable solutions. The Commission will help develop smart systems for traffic management and ‘Mobility as a Service’ solutions, through its funding instruments, such as the Connected Europe Facility. Horizon Europe, in synergy with other EU programmes, will play a pivotal role in leveraging national public and private investments. Sustainable re- and afforestation and the restoration of degraded forests can increase absorption of CO2 while improving the resilience of forests and promoting the circular bio-economy. The European Green Deal is a response to these challenges. The biodiversity strategy will identify specific measures to meet these objectives. Farm to fork strategy. In addition to the Climate Pact, the Commission and Member States should work to ensure that all available planning tools for the European Green Deal are used coherently. 20 following-up with diplomacy, trade policy, development support and other external policies, the EU can be an effective advocate. The circular economy action plan will also include. However, any state aid would have to be vetted by the commission as part of new regional transition plans submitted beforehand to Brussels. This flow of investment will need to be sustained over time. . 30 The Commission will rigorously enforce the legislation related to the energy performance of buildings. The Farm to Fork Strategy will also contribute to achieving a circular economy. It will propose legislation in 2020 to ensure a safe, circular and sustainable battery value chain for all batteries, including to supply the growing market of electric vehicles. The EU’s trade policy facilitates trade and investment in green goods and services and promotes climate-friendly public procurement. Creating a toxic-free environment requires more action to prevent pollution from being generated as well as measures to clean and remedy it. There is a need to ensure rapid adoption of the Commission’s proposal on value added tax (VAT) rates currently on the table of the Council, so that Member States can make a more targeted use of VAT rates to reflect increased environmental ambitions, for example to support organic fruit and vegetables. because they depend on fossil fuels or carbon-intensive processes. The Commission will notably propose to revise air quality standards to align them more closely with the World Health Organization recommendations. Similarly, air quality should be improved near airports by tackling the emissions of pollutants by aeroplanes and airport operations. To ensure that the EU plays a key role, the Commission will present a. be followed up by specific action in 2021. The urban dimension of cohesion policy will be strengthened, and the proposed European Urban Initiative will provide assistance to cities to help them make best use of opportunities to develop sustainable urban development strategies. New measures on their own will not be enough to achieve the European Green Deal’s objectives. supercomputers, cloud, ultra-fast networks) and artificial intelligence solutions, facilitate evidence-based decisions and expand the capacity to understand and tackle environmental challenges. Trade policy can support the EU’s ecological transition. Youth climate activists led by Greta Thunberg accused EU Green Deal chief Frans Timmermans of lacking the courage to align the bloc's massive farm subsidies scheme with his own flagship climate goals. At least 35% of the budget of Horizon Europe will fund new solutions for climate, which are relevant for implementing the Green Deal. The Commission will present a Sustainable Europe Investment Plan to. This is where transformational change is most needed and potentially most beneficial for the EU economy, society and natural environment. The Commission will also promote action by the EU, its Member States and the international community to step up efforts against environmental crime. This requires new legislation, including targets and measures for tackling over-packaging and waste generation. By 2025, about 1 million public recharging and refuelling stations will be needed for the 13 million zero- and low-emission vehicles expected on European roads. Between 1990 and 2018, it reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 23%, while the economy grew by 61%. The clean energy transition should involve and benefit consumers. Finally, EU diplomatic efforts will be mobilised in support of the Green Deal. Based on public consultations, on the identification of the environmental, social and economic impacts, and on analyses of how SMEs are affected and innovation fostered or hindered, impact assessments contribute to making efficient policy choices at minimum costs, in line with the objectives of the Green Deal. The Commission will propose to amend the Climate Law to update it accordingly. one of the flagship programmes of the Green Deal, we need to work towards zero,” sometime in the 2030s, under an agreement struck earlier this year. Work will continue under the common fisheries policy to reduce the adverse impacts that fishing can have on ecosystems, especially in sensitive areas. National budgets play a key role in the transition. The Commission has also been stepping up effort. to implement and enforce the sustainable development commitments of EU trade agreements, and these efforts will be further enhanced with the appointment of a Chief Trade Enforcement Officer. Between 1990 and 2018, it reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 23%, while the economy grew by 61%. Europe must leverage the potential of the digital transformation, which is a key enabler for reaching the Green Deal objectives. The Commission proposal for a Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument proposes to allocate a target of 25% of its budget to climate-related objectives. Extended producer responsibility will also be strengthened. The Commission and the Member States must also ensure that policies and legislation are enforced and deliver effectively. showed worldwide erosion of biodiversity, caused primarily by changes in how land and sea are used, direct exploitation of natural resources. The Commission will propose further legislation and guidance on green public purchasing. The EU will continue to lead international efforts and wants to build alliances with the like-minded. The EU is also working with global partners to develop international carbon markets as a key tool to create economic incentives for climate action. This will make it easier to assess to what extent annual budgets and medium-term fiscal plans take environmental considerations and risks into account, and learn from best practices. This will enshrine the 2050 climate neutrality objective in legisl. The national strategic plans under the c, ommon agricultural policy should incentivise forest managers to preserve, grow and manage forests sustainably, Building on the Communication on Stepping up EU Action to Protect and Restore the World’s Forests, , the Commission will take measures, both regul. The Commission has been working to provide Member States with new financial resources to make school buildings and operations more sustainable. All EU policies should contribute to preserving and restoring Europe’s natural capital Ecosystems provide essential services such as food, fresh water and clean air, and shelter. New technologies and scientific discoveries, combined with increasing public awareness and demand for sustainable food, will benefit all stakeholders. From 1970 to 2017, the annual global extraction of materials tripled and it continues to grow. The ecological transition for Europe can only be fully effective if the EU’s immediate neighbourhood also takes effective action. The first steps under the Green Deal Financing the green transition. More generally, lasting solutions to climate change require greater attention to nature-based solutions including healthy and resilient seas and oceans. To achieve climate neutrality, a 90% reduction in transport emissions is needed by 2050. Digitalisation can also help improve the availability of information on the characteristics of products sold in the EU. To this end, the Commission will review the Non-Financial Reporting Directive. Participants would be encouraged to commit to specific climate action goals. pollution from being generated as well as measures to clean and remedy it. Focus should also be put on renovating schools and hospitals, as the money saved through building efficiency will be money available to support education and public health. When Ursula von der Leyen announced the European Green Deal in 2019, she hailed it as “Europe’s ‘man on the moon’ moment”. The transition is an opportunity to expand sustainable and job-intensive economic activity. Preserving and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity. The Green Deal was a UK government policy initiative that gave homeowners, landlords and tenants the opportunity to pay for energy efficient home improvements through the savings on their energy bills from 2012 to 2015. The Commission will continue to ensure that all relevant legislation is rigorously enforced. As public funds will not suffice, the EU and its Member States will coordinate their support to engage with partners to bridge the funding gap by mobilising private finance. This initiative will also include innovative financing schemes under InvestEU. The proposed €100bn instrument has three legs: Every euro spent from the fund could be complemented by 2 or 3 euros coming from the region. 26 This will create challenges for a number of states and societies. All EU actions and policies will have to contribute to the European Green Deal objectives. It will draw on sources of funding from the EU budget as well as the EIB group to leverage the necessary private and public resources. Food production still results in air, water and soil pollution, contributes to the loss of biodiversity and climate change, and consumes excessive amounts of natural resources, while an important part of food is wasted. Schools, training institutions and universities are well placed to engage with pupils, parents, and the wider community on the changes needed for a successful transition. The Commission will adopt a new, more ambitious EU strategy on adaptation to climate change. This includes investment to provide affordable solutions to those affected by carbon pricing policies, for example through public transport, as well as measures to address energy poverty and promote re-skilling. The Commission will consider legislative options to boost the production and uptake of sustainable alternative fuels for the different transport modes. The Conference of Parties in Glasgow in 2020 will be an important milestone before the global stocktake in 2023. Where waste cannot be avoided, its economic value must be recovered and its impact on the environment and on climate change avoided or minimised. The environmental implementation review will play a critical role in mapping the situation in each Member State. The EU will continue to ensure that the Paris Agreement remains the indispensable multilateral framework for tackling climate change. to achieve at least this level of ambition in the proposals. 10. It will develop a stronger ‘green deal diplomacy’ focused on convincing and supporting others to take on their share of promoting more sustainable development. Access to resources is also a strategic security question for Europe’s ambition to deliver the Green Deal. The Commission will work with the European Parliament and the Council to achieve at least this level of ambition in the proposals. By shifting the focus from compliance to performance, measures such as eco-schemes should reward farmers for improved environmental and climate performance, including managing and storing carbon in the soil, and improved nutrient management to improve water quality and reduce emissions. 4. Regions will also be offered technical assistance in order to help them “absorb” the funds while respecting the EU’s strict spending rules. Renewable energy sources will have an essential role. To address these interlinked challenges, the Commission will adopt in 2021 a zero pollution action plan for air, water and soil. They mitigate natural disasters, pests and diseases and help regulate the climate. The Commission will also launch a dashboard to monitor progress against all of the European Green Deal objectives. Whether in air, soil or water, the objective is to reach a “pollution-free environment” by 2050. transform the economy with the aim of climate neutrality. It will present a comprehensive action plan in 2020 to implement itself the objectives of the Green Deal and to become climate neutral by 2030. Recent political events show that game-changing policies only work if citizens are fully involved in designing them. COMMUNICATION FROM THE COMMISSION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL, THE COUNCIL, THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COMMITTEE AND THE COMMITTEE OF THE REGIONS, Annex to the Communication on the European Green Deal, Indicative Timetable 2.2.2.Greening national budgets and sending the right price signals. rapid decrease in the cost of renewables, combined with improved design of support policies, has already reduced the impact on households’ energy bills of renewables deployment. . In parallel, the Commission proposes to work with stakeholders on a new initiative on renovation in 2020, . The EU’s international cooperation and partnership policy should continue to help channel both public and private funds to achieve the transition. The environmental ambition of the Green Deal will not be achieved by Europe acting alone. The EU should also reinforce current initiatives and engage with third countries on cross-cutting climate and environment issues. One year after the EU agreed new CO2 emission standards for cars, the automotive sector is once again in the commission’s firing line. The EIB set itself the target of doubling its climate target from 25% to 50% by 2025, thus becoming Europe’s climate bank. This requires deeper cooperation across value chains, as in the case of the Circular Plastics Alliance. These steps will complement the measures taken at national level. All EU actions and policies should pull together to help the EU achieve a successful and just transition towards a sustainable future. The production and use of energy across economic sectors account for more than 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. The Commission will work with it to continue to provide assistance to cities and regions that want to commit to ambitious pledges on climate and energy policies. There is a need to ensure rapid adoption of the Commission’s proposal on value added tax (VAT) rates currently on the table of the Council, so that Member States can make a more targeted use of VAT rates to reflect increased environmental ambitions, for example to support organic fruit and vegetables. In parallel, the regulatory framework will need to rapidly reflect scientific evidence on the risk posed by endocrine disruptors, hazardous chemicals in products including imports, combination effects of different chemicals and very persistent chemicals. This will require, measures to manage better, and to increase the capacity of railways and inland waterways, which the Commission will propose by 2021. It calls on all the other institutions, bodies and agencies of the EU to work with it and come forward with similar ambitious measures. The Commission will explore measures to ensure that. Four ‘Green Deal Missions’ will help deliver large-scale changes in areas such as adaptation to climate change, oceans, cities and soil. The circular economy action plan will also include measures to encourage businesses to offer, and to allow consumers to choose, reusable, durable and repairable products. 29 By shifting the focus from compliance to performance, measures such as eco-schemes should reward farmers for improved environmental and climate performance, including managing and storing carbon in the soil, and improved nutrient management to improve water quality and reduce emissions. The Commission has proposed new revenue streams (“Own Resources”), one of which is based on the non-recycled plastic-packaging waste. Companies making ‘green claims’ should substantiate these against a standard methodology to assess their impact on the environment. 5 It will aim to reduce the environmental impact of the food processing and retail sectors by taking action on transport, storage, packaging and food waste. It will take action in relation to maritime transport, including to regulate access of the most polluting ships to EU ports and to oblige docked ships to use shore-side electricity. The Commission will continue to work on new standards for sustainable growth and use its economic weight to shape international standards that are in line with EU environmental and climate ambitions. EU CHEMICALS POLICY Almost 20 years after the first strategic approach to chemicals management in Europe18, the time has come to chart a new long-term vision for the EU’s chemical policy. The Skills Agenda and the Youth Guarantee will be updated to enhance employability in the green economy. Pro-active re-skilling and upskilling are necessary to reap the benefits of the ecological transition. Second, there should be both real and virtual spaces for people to express their ideas and creativity and work together on ambitious action, both at individual and collective level. To simplify waste management for citizens and ensure cleaner secondary materials for businesses, the Commission will also propose an EU model for separate waste collection. The Commission will consider legal requirements to boost the market of secondary raw materials with mandatory recycled content (for instance for packaging, vehicles, construction materials and batteries). Building renovation. Append an asterisk (, Other sites managed by the Publications Office, Introduction - turning an urgent challenge into a unique opportunity, This Communication sets out a European Green Deal for the European Union (EU). All EU actions and policies should pull together to help the EU achieve a successful and just transition towards a sustainable future. Second, increased opportunities will be provided for investors and companies by making it easier for them to identify sustainable investments and ensuring that they are credible. The European Green Deal is the EU’s answer to what the European commission’s new president, Ursula von der Leyen, called the “existential issue” of the climate emergency. This is essential, as climate change will continue to create significant stress in Europe in spite of the mitigation efforts. Likewise, the forthcoming Comprehensive Strategy with Africa, and the 2020 summit between the African Union and the EU, should make climate and environmental issues key strands in relations between the two continents. The Horizon Europe programme will also involve local communities in working towards a more sustainable future, in initiatives that seek to combine societal pull and technology push. 13 A key aim of the new policy framework will be to stimulate the development of lead markets for climate neutral and circular products, in the EU and beyond. The Commission will ensure that these strategic plans are assessed against robust climate and environmental criteria. “This is Europe’s man on the moon moment,” she said in a video statement. It will be updated as needs evolve and the, All EU actions and policies will have to contribute t, . Third, the Commission will work on building capacity to facilitate grassroots initiatives on climate change and environmental protection. While increasing renovation rates is a challenge, renovation lowers energy bills, and can reduce energy poverty. Numerous panellists (nearly all of the Conference’s Panel II and III) warned that there will be no success in the EU Green Deal without balanced and politically unbiased approach to Energy and Transport. European farmers and fishermen are key to managing the transition. It has strengthened collaboration with the European Investment Bank and created stronger links between structural funds and the new financial instruments with the aim of leveraging €3 billion in investment in school infrastructure in 2020. It will work to facilitate trade in environmental goods and services, in bilateral and multilateral forums, and in supporting open and attractive EU and global markets for sustainable products. News EU lauds new Green Deal as Europe's 'man on moon moment' European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has praised a plan to make Europe the world's first climate neutral continent. EURACTIV.com with EFE. 16 will focus on the regions and sectors that are most affected by the transition. This will create challenges for a number of states and societies. To be ready in 2050, decisions and actions need to be taken in the next five years. Stakeholder Europe must not turn its back on the Mediterranean diet 2.1.3.Mobilising industry for a clean and circular economy. This will increase the efficiency of the transport system. “That’s a bold objective, but after all we don’t make steel so we might have an easier job,” the official said. Much remains to be done, starting with more ambitious climate action in the coming decade. The Commission will take forward the work on the Clean Energy for EU Islands Initiative to develop a long-term framework to accelerate the clean energy transition on all EU islands. It has strengthened collaboration with the European Investment Bank and created stronger links between structural funds and the new financial instruments with the aim of leveraging €3 billion in investment in school infrastructure in 2020. The Commission will present a renewed sustainable finance strategy in the third quarter of 2020 that will focus on a number of actions. Digitalisation also presents new opportunities for distance monitoring of air and water pollution, or for monitoring and optimising how energy and natural resources are used. , will need to be reviewed to ensure consistency with the climate neutrality objective. The proposed European Social Fund+ will play an important role in helping Europe’s workforce to acquire the skills they need to transfer from declining sectors to growing sectors and to adapt to new processes. A just transition fund that will mobilise resources from the EU’s regional policy budget; The “InvestEU” programme, with money coming from the European Investment Bank; EIB funding coming from the EU bank’s own capital.
