Achieving the ambitious European climate targets will require substantially broadening the agenda and the circle of involved actors. The European Green Deal can only be successful when non-EU countries, industry, social partners, central banks, national policymakers, and many other actors support, or at least not obstruct, the transformation.

In this high-level pan-European conference, we brought together key EU think-tanks, national government representatives and European policymakers to discuss the priority green-deal policies that go beyond classic Brussels-based environmental regulations. We reflected on the main outcomes of COP26 in the context of the coherent EU action.
